    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Long & McQuade (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    My interview process was pretty great. It was one on one with the store manager. I was asked a bunch of questions. We chatted about gear and instruments. As well as the hours/days that were required and scheduling. After that I was offered a job and then enrolled in their three day training program.
