    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Limited (Charlotte, NC) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Hiring/interview process took less than a week. Called in for an interview, spoke to the manager on duty prior to having my interview with the supervisor who interviewed me. I then had an interview the following day with the head manager. Both interviews were fairly simple. I did find it interesting that I had to complete two interviews though.
