I worked at Mervyns part-time (Less than a year)
There were extra shifts available. The hours were ok. Training was easy.
I was only a seasonal employee while i was in school so maybe i wasn't there long enough to get that much experience
I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mervyns (Hayward, CA).
I interviewed out of college, they met with me on campus, then flew us out for an interview. They put us up in a W hotel and gave a store tour. Then they held the interviews and panel discussions. The interviews were 30 minutes each and I think I met with 3 people. A job offer was extended within a week.
There was no negotiation.
