    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Barnes & Noble.

    Interview

    It was a very relaxed interview. I met with the cafe manager first and then the store manager afterwards. We talked about what a day would look like working there and they asked situational questions about dealing with customers.
