Interview

There were several rounds of interviews all culminating with the team leader. It was relatively informal—it was done in the cafeteria of the store. There were no questions that felt totally out of left field. I also knew someone who worked in the store which probably assisted in this process.

Interview Questions
  • Favorite food, work style, etc. There were some silly questions too if I'm recalling correctly.

I went during hire day. It was quick and easy. The HR specialist was very professional and personable. She was easy to engage with and was willing to answer any question I had.
