    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Potbelly Sandwich Works (Cleveland, OH).

    Interview

    Contact the manager directly and offer to play a set some day. Nobody checks soundclouds, youtube, resumes, etc. But if you are qualified, you'll already know this trade secret ;)
