    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Portrait Innovations (Cary, NC) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for the job on indeed. Received a phone call about a week later asking if I’d like to come in for an interview. Once I got there I filled out the application which basically just asked basic information, education, and work experience. After filling out the application I waited for about 20 minutes while the manager helped a family pick out portraits. It allowed me time to relax and get a feel for the atmosphere. When the manager was done she came over and we began the interview right there out in the open, there was no office or interview room. The interview lasted about 15 minutes and overall gave me the feeling I got the job.

    The interview process depends on the time of year. Some people have to submit to a over the phone interview, Web came interview, as well as an in person interview. Others walk in and are hired on the spot. This is unfair and not a very reliable hiring process
