    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at West Marine (Watsonville, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Was contacted and invited to participate in a pre-screen call from an outside recruiter. If successful, that would have been followed up by an interview by a corporate representative over the phone, or in person at the corporate office in CA.

    Interview Questions

    • None asked - Canceled my initial phone interview 3 times due to scheduling conflicts.   1 Answer
