Advice to Management
Find a solution for communication to staff along with regular schedule updates.
I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Moosejaw (Madison Heights, MI) in June 2015.
The I.T. Staff was very friendly, though there was lack of direction with the arrangement of the interview questions. There were no detailed questions and It felt like they had me there just to have a demographic. They have no problem wasting your time, having employees take turns interviewing you and then leave you hanging much longer than the "We'll let you know in about a week" time period. This "interview process" went on for about 30 days.
