    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Better World Books (Mishawaka, IN) in September 2014.

    Interview

    The process was fairly easy. I was called for a phone interview, which only lasted maybe fifteen minutes, and then came in for an interview, which lasted a half hour. Everyone was friendly and the questions were adequate for the position.

    Negotiation

    There was no room for negotiating.
