    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Pottery Barn.

    Interview

    I came into a retail store for a career fair. After filling out an application and submitting my resume and cover letter I was able to speak with the manager right away. He was very courteous and friendly. He read through some questions, described the role including the sales goals, and inquired about my availability. He also shared a bit about his background and the direction the company was taking in future months.
