    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Duane Reade (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview went well. I got there about 15-20 minutes early. When it was time for the interview, the manager discussed the company's contribution to the society and it's goals.
