    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Travel Traders in August 2015.

    Interview

    I saw an ad online and brought in my resume to the Gift Shop. I got a call to schedule an interview. I arrived to my interview and was asked to fill out an application. I turned it in and had my interview. She went over my availability and then saw that I wanted 9.50 as my wage but she said that the wage was 9.00 and I wasn't okay with that. She says that it was their terms and if I didn't agree she would have to end the interview. I did not agree since I've had a decent amount of experience. Guess it wasn't the right job for me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Travel Traders.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty straight forward. I was interviewed by an HR head and an area manger. They said basic behavior and situational questions. Have plenty examples of good customer service and problem solving to talk about. As long as you come to the interview 10-15 min. early, dress business casual, and present yourself in a professional manner, you will nail it! It was about 5 questions and about 30 min. long. They hired me on the spot.
