    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Belk (Charlotte, NC).

    Interview

    I was contacted several months before my actual interview about the job opportunity. I had to email multiple times and reschedule my initial phone interview more than 5 times before I actually spoke to the recruiter, which was a bit frustrating. After that I was asked to do a small design project that I also had to push back several weeks after not getting the details as planned and some personal obligations. After completion I had an actual interview with the design team and was offered the job. Everyone I met was very nice and seemed easy to get along with. The facility itself seemed to have lots of light, and they were doing renovations to make it even better. On site gym, coffee bar, and cafeteria. It was a very generous offer, but I ended up declining because I was given less than a week to decide, and less than two weeks before my start date, which would not have been fair to my current employer. I also did not like that the desks had zero personal space, just a small desk right next to your coworker/boss with no divider or cubicle or anything. As an introvert this working style would be really distracting, although I could have gotten used to it if I had to. Hopefully companies will start realizing that SOME personal space is needed to do your best work, especially for a designer.
