    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at STA Travel in September 2012.

    Interview

    Applied directly to the store manager. Went in for an interview and was hired on the spot. Interview took about an hour. The staff member I was replacing was there and she explained the job benefits etc. Once hired there was an intranet training for the booking system and product knowledge.
