I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Strand Book Store (New York, NY) in November 2016.
I was called after I applied. I went in and spoke with their recruitment officer. She was polite, professional and very candid. She proceeded to ask me questions about my history working in bookstores and a few personal questions regarding my interest in the Strand.
