    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Henri Bendel (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    Fast interview process was great. If you are fashionable and have a personality, you will click with customers and do well. The best people for the position are often looked over because they don't have " the look" although they would make a great difference in business.
