I applied and was called back about a week or 2 later for an interview. Interview was very easy. She asked me why I wanted to work there, what I do in my free time, my experience, how I deal with customers, just general questions and it lasted about 10 minutes. Before interviewing I had to fill out a prescreening form which asked things about stealing and doing drugs. I was offered a part time position on the spot and my orientation was 1 week later.

I was hired at the first interview as full time, where they normally hire part time then move you up to full time after the probation period. I went to orientation the next day.

I went in and filled out the application on Monday night. By the next day at 11:30 I had a phone call for an interview. The interview was 10 minutes long and consisted of getting asked questions and the interviewer writing down my answers. No eye contact between questions at all. The only time I was even looked at was at the end of the interview when I was asked if I had any questions. I was told by her that I would here back by the end of the following day if I would have a job, Never heard back until I called to follow up and was told they went another direction. I was looking for a part time position for extra money. I think there hiring process is a joke really. Wasn't personable or any give and take in the whole process like an interview should be. I felt like I was just another person in the pile of applications that they wanted to run though as quickly as possible.

It only takes about 2 weeks. You go in for the interview and then they give you a follow up call if you are hired or not. If you are hired you have orientation and all that is required to start working is to pass a drug test.
