    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage (Tulsa, OK).

    Interview

    It was a bit intimidating because the District Manager was there. However I knew the acting manager so it was an interview that turned into laughs. It was all in all a stress to stress free interview due to my connections so i don't think this will be helpful. but i can tell you to just be loose and have a work safe comeback here and there and they will probably fall in love with you.
