    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at francesca's.

    Interview

    sat in open public atrium of mall, was not asked to go into backroom where it would be just us.
    was asked usual questions, strengths, weaknesses etc.
    went over resume/pay---was not flexible on pay.
    very short, maybe 15-20 minutes
