If you have a pulse, a little knowledge of the industry, and can use an old dial up system, you are golden.
The Interview is read from a standard required script. The book training process consists of four days. Employees don't usally began to run well for about 3 months due to the fact that we cross train in every aspect of the job. It is a good experience in the fact that you are taught everything to do with retail instead of being assigned to one area of a store. The down fall is always understaffed and under payed.
Not hard, I was called in for an interview shortly after I had dropped off my resume.

Pretty standard. However, if hired, you have to go through three months of (intense) training. A week of that was spent over 4 hours from my home at another store. They act like the job is difficult and its really important that you do everything perfectly. It's a total Joke for $13 an hour.
