    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Crate and Barrel.

    Interview

    I first had a phone interview with HR to screen me. Then I had an interview with a few people on the team that I would be working with. Then I had a final interview/sessions with HR. The interview was not intimidating and everyone was friendly and personable.
