    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Indigo Books & Music.

    Interview

    Applied for the position online and heard a response within a week. Was asked to come in for a group audition. 40+ applicants were divided into groups and asked to participate in 3 activities, being reviewed by different department managers and the GM. The whole process lasted almost 2 hours and involved a team activity, a questions section and than role playing. You need to have an outgoing personality and really speak up as you are competing for the position. It was an enjoyable experience and different from the typical, tense one on one sections.

    Interview Questions

    • The usual, tell me about a time when you had to handle a difficult situation in the work place. What was it and how did you handle it?   Answer Question
