    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Blinds.com (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    Met with employee panel, then manager who hired me on the spot. Apparently the company was desperate for people to fill positions which should have been a warning, but they chalked it up to a business growing by leaps and bounds.
