    Best of luck with your interview.

    Feel free to sing along to your favorite tune(s) on your drive over to Fry's. It will get some air deep into your lungs and it will help stretch those vocal chords and mouth muscles. In your car, nobody will care if you make a fool of yourself. So get it out of your system there. :D

    Again, good luck! :)

    If you're still nervous when you get closer, get there a bit early and take a walk around the block before going in...does wonders for the pre-interview nerves, puts a little color in your face and get the blood flowing. :)

    Congrats on getting this far. I'll be looking for your report tomorrow.

    If you've made it this far, they'll likely be trying to learn what kind of person you are tomorrow and if you fit in with their culture. Be on your best behavior!

    good luck tomorrow! I enjoy Fry's Electronics because it's a giant toy store for grownups that serves me some tasty coffee.

    Heading there tomorrow in fact :)

    The interview process is 3 because 1st 2 are supervisors of different depts in the store there might be openings in there dept. so the 3rd is the Hired or dismissed interview if you get that far .. 3rd is with the store mgr .. i think .. i'll get the bus. card tomorrow from s/he ...

    Z: if im hired there and you're in North San Diego County anytime drop by see me ;) :cool: :D

    i'll be a product specialist in the store then maybe sales rep after that :D

    went to Fry's @ 8am and had cup of coffee there,walked around to burn some time before my interview .. Helped someone to find an ethernet cable ..:D .. found the cable and continued with browsing the store before heading to the area of interview ..

    20 mins waiting @ the check-out counter then sat outside of the Mgrs. office to be called in .. interview 15 mins., signed some papers and got Drug Test Papers

    Did the test waiting on fry's to call to tell me when to come in .. :D :D :cool: :D :D

    that was my day :eek: :eek:

    I think you mean E-Noun-CE-ATE, but it doesn't matter because he got the job anyway. Congratulations to the OP! I'll be in San Diego this summer so I'll stop in and say hi if I need an ethernet cable

    So the drug testing thing is normal when applying for a job in the US?

    Drug test/background check are always a pre-employment requirement for any job in the US :eek:

    not any job, but most jobs.

    Then they always send them to the lab to have it done when they should be at occupational health

    at least 3 times a day i am telling someone they are in the wrong place and i will show them where to go.
