    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at New Balance.

    Interview

    It's an individual interview with management. Sometimes (depending on the individual store) they'll have several employees as well as management speak with you to see if you're a good fit for the company/store. If they like you, they'll give you an offer and after that they submit the background check. Sometimes this process takes an unnecessarily long time. We had applicants accept other offers while they were waiting on their background check. That's the one think I would change about the process.
