    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Stein Mart.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Took only a few days for an interview date and time to be set up. The interview was brief, not even 15 minutes but the interviewer was very kind and easy to talk to. I had a good feeling about getting it but left the store pretty sure it wouldn't be the position I signed up for. I thought I'd better ask if what I applied for was actually available and was told they don't just hire into that position which is fine but had I'd known that in the beginning, it could have saved me a lot of time. There was still hope though and couple days after the interview I received an offer.
