    I Interviewed at AOL

    As an AOL interviewee, I'm in the unusual position of having traveled a roller coaster that has much to do with the current economy: I started as a freelance writer, became a freelance editor, and then became the contracted managing editor of the WalletPop website.

  • I Interviewed at Google

    I Interviewed at Google

    My experience applying for a job at Google took me on an emotional roller coaster ride. In 2007, I had been an administrator at a Silicon Valley university for six years.

    I Interviewed with the FBI

    The FBI. You can hardly hear that acronym without thinking of black-suited secret agents and television crime dramas; and like most people, I'd harbored midday fantasies about how working for such an agency could dramatically improve my life. If not with the pay scale, then with the excitement. I was an... Continue Reading

    I Interviewed at Best Buy

    I am a 28-year-old who recently finished graduate school. In the fall of 2003, I was 21, not yet in college, and working part-time to full-time (depending on the week) at Domino's Pizza.

    I Interviewed at Apple Retail

    I'm a 30-year-old multimedia professional and Apple "fan girl" who -- for the purposes of this article -- will go by the pseudonym "Lucy" (since I do not want my current employer to know that I have been interviewing for a new job). I landed a job interview at Apple simply by submitting a cover letter and... Continue Reading

  • I Interviewed at Lowe's

    I Interviewed at Lowe's

    I am a girly girl who isn't a homeowner. Having said that, I rarely have the need to shop at Lowe's. The company is a retail warehouse filled with merchandise ranging from dishwashers and wooden doors to outside power equipment, so it wasn't a place I ever shopped. I didn't even know how to use a hammer! Continue Reading

    I Interviewed at the Home Depot

    I arrived at the Home Depot in Salinas, Calif. 10 minutes prior to my interview appointment time and checked in at the Return Counter as I had been instructed.

    Decision Makers: It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's a Boeing

    If you've flown on a plane recently, there's a good chance it was a Boeing airplane. Boeing has more than 12,000 planes in service, roughly 63 percent of the world's commercial fleet.

    Decision Makers: UPS -- What Can Brown Do for You?

    To many people, UPS is the way to get that almost-late birthday or Christmas gift to arrive on time. Every day the company delivers 15.5 million packages. That's 15.5 million tracking numbers. This takes a lot of manpower, so it should come as no surprise that the company also delivers 408,000 weekly... Continue Reading
