    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Vera Bradley (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Brief interview with store director in SoHo. She was nice and seemed genuine. The interview was just about what my sales technique is, what are my skills that I can bring to the team. My biggest issue with the interview process was that I was told that I would be getting a call from the regional hiring manager with a week, but never got a call. It's been a few months now.
