    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Half Price Books.

    Interview

    The interview was really short. It only last about 10 minutes. They called me back about 5 days later letting me know I didn't get the job. The interview was a little awkward because there were two people there to interview me but only one of them asked questions. The other guy just sat there and shook his head every now and then. They asked questions like what my favorite book and music genres are. They also asked what my strengths and weaknesses are. The only question they asked that threw me off was to give an example of some good customer service that I received recently.
