    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Very simple hiring process. Applied online after seeing a job ad, and got an email a few days later that I have progressed to a group interview at the store I was applying for.
    The group interview itself was fairly easy, was placed in a room with 7-10 other candidates. Standard questions of your reasons for wanting to work for the company, previous experiences and situational-type questions. Towards the end, they also gave everyone a product and was told to create a quick sales-pitch on the spot.
    No individual interviews occurred, and the interview was done in about 1 and a half hours.
