    I applied for the position online on a Friday, interviewed on the following Monday, and started training the next week.

However, this company recently just fired all of their Human Resources department so things may be different now.

    CPO Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Las Vegas, NV (US)
    Declined Offer

    Interview

    It was supposed to be two people interviewing me for the supervisor/management position but one had to leave. I'm sure that was a tell-tell sign of their intensions but I gave them the benefit of the doubt. One lady was very strange and shook hands with me like she was from another planet. They questioned me about me education several times as if I were lying about it.
