    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Perry Ellis International.

    Interview

    Short. Interviewed and hired immediately. The manager wasn't really that sharp. He assumed my background and college experience was enough. I'm not sure he understood how the interview was actually a better idea for me on how the company worked.
