    Interview

    Was more difficult for me than it is now. I took an hour long test in the office and met with at least 4 or 5 people.

    Now it will be easy- they are desperate to hire

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Vitamin Shoppe (New York, NY).

    Hiring process was simple but long. Got a call from the District Manager, scheduled an interview, Interview went well, typical star method. 1 week after the DM interview, received a call for a follow up interview with the Regional Manager (phone interview as he couldn't fly over from Phoenix AZ). Got a call the next day with an offer. It took another 2 weeks to go through drug screening and background.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Vitamin Shoppe in August 2016.

    Interview

    Prior to my interview actually happening, the assistant manager had called me for a phone screening then asked "Can you come in tomorrow at 11 a.m.?" verbatim, for the interview. So I got ready the next morning, drove all the way there half asleep since the anxiety kept me up, and I walked in. I spoke to the first person I saw which happened to be the person who did the phone screening. She said "Oh, well the manager who usually does interviews isn't here. I think it's supposed to be Friday." -_-

    I was so confused. So she gave me a business card for some reason as if the number on there could get me in contact with the store manager. Called it anyways and it of course it went to the store instead. The same person I was just talking to before goes "Umm, I think we misspoke. Come in tomorrow at 11 if that will work or I can reschedule". I told her to reschedule because I already had another interview lined up at that time. So somehow someway, she scheduled for me to come in on the wrong day and didn't realize it. I couldn't have heard wrong because "tomorrow" and "Friday" sound nothing alike. Grrr.

    Anyways, after that part it was like any other standard interview. They sat me down in their tiny backroom and just went over some common questions. I lost my train of thought once but felt confident about the rest. I guess they found someone better to fill the position. I don't know if I want to be working with mrs. forgetful anyways.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Vitamin Shoppe (Miami, FL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    It's a 2 interview process. If they like you they'll ask you to come back to speak tonthe other manager.

    Because I had a referral the process went a little faster then I'm assuming being that my friend gave the manager a heads up and was interested right away. He made sure that he went through all the hiring steps. You do have to complete the application online and a few questions to even get accepted for an interview.
