    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Food Basics (Ontario, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    I went into the store and asked for a manager. I was able to hand my resume to a manager and tell them a little about myself and my availability. They said they would keep in touch as they would be hiring soon. I called back a week later to follow up and was called in for an interview. Pretty standard interview- tell me about yourself, your experience, strengths/weaknesses.
