    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Original Penguin (Cypress, TX) in October 2012.

    Interview

    I walked into the store and had to wait a couple of minutes for the manager to come out. I was really nervous, but the manager was really relaxed and easy going. There were really simple questions, and I was basically hired after I did the interview. Everyone at the store greeted me kindly as well.
