    Cons

    The stores always feel like they're being operated on a shoe-string
    Antiquated technology
    Not much money available for raises
    A very high level of competency, initiative, and accuracy is required for very little pay
    Must work most Saturdays (but that's retail!)

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Calico Corners (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    Meet with the store manager, talk about your background, career goals, and why you chose to apply to Calico. Then, you complete a really fun exercise in which you pull samples from the floor to design a hypothetical room.
