    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Books-A-Million (Orlando, FL) in November 2019.

    Interview

    Quick and easy. Walked in and immediately had an associate call the manager and was able to start the interview. Got hired on the spot and was a fairly lax environment.
