    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Carson's (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Phone interview . A time was set up for the interview. I was called, asked some general questions. The interviewer was impressed with my responses and said so. I was called a week later by a different person saying that they decided to go in a different direction. Found out after the fact. It's not what you know, but you know.
