    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at See's Candies.

    Interview

    I don't remember how long it took for me to hear back after submitting my application, but I got an interview, showed up and there were 2 more people and we did a group interview (so 3 total). I had no retail experience and the other 2 had much more, but when it came to questions I felt I held up alright. The big one is to know the difference between upselling and suggestive selling, and prepare to suggestive sell something like a water bottle.
