    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (Los Angeles, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was simple, you apply online and get called back if your qualified. In my case I got a call back couldn't make it. I attended a job fair, there was about 5 managers from different stores to hire for a new location. I think it's your beat bet, apply online and find a job fair*mostly on Craigslist* no one really goes to job fair since they post there better chance for you!. What they looking for, outgoing, ( I'm not at all! But even just a nice overall personality you'll talk to customers not just ignore them, open availability or to have at least 4 days in which you can work. They called me back in days times to let me know I got the job!
