I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Pet Food Express (Oakland, CA) in February 2018.
The phone interview turned out to be a ten minute marketing survey rather than an interview. I was never asked about my background or skills, no job related questions. The recruiter's only questions were about my shopping habits for buying pet food. When I told her I don't currently have a pet, she didn't seem to listen and continued asking questions like, "where do you buy your dog or cat food?" What kinds of pet food and supplies do you buy and where?, Why do you buy your pet food at a particular store?"
At the end of her marketing survey, I tried asking about the position but she replied I would have a chance to ask questions during the second interview.
The interview seemed like a deceptive attempt to collect marketing data. They didn't seem to care what skills I could bring to the role.
