I applied in-person. The process took 1 day – interviewed at cohens fashion optical (Paramus, NJ) in April 2015.
The interview lasted three minutes. Two questions where asked at most. I wasnt able to ask much because the interviewer seemed to be in a rush and seemed very unenthused. She didnt explain anything on how the job was either. Not much to expect during a 3 minute interview

I applied online. The process took 3 days – interviewed at cohens fashion optical (New York, NY) in October 2014.
I applied online to a very vague admin posting. The following day I received a call from the receptionist who asked me if I was still looking for a job and I agreed to interview the next day. When I arrived early, I was asked to fill out an application (which I had already done online) which took about 15 minutes. By the time I met with the person who interviewed it, it was already about 25 minutes past my scheduled interview time. When I sat down with my interviewer, she had already printed out a copy of my resume, which was nice but I already had one. She basically just described the job, which ended up being really different from what I expected and was more of a glorified head of maintenance job. I wasn't really asked about any of my skills or why I wanted to work there. I asked her what the hardest part of the job was and she basically told me it would just me stressful all day. At this point I had basically decided that this wasn't a position I was seriously interested in. I was told that a decision would be made within the next couple of days for a second interview, but I decided after leaving that the company climate was not for me.

The process took 1 day – interviewed at cohens fashion optical (New York, NY) in September 2011.
The receptionist was slightly impolite and I was kept waiting for almost 30 mins before the interviewer finally came to greet me. This was a corporate position.

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at cohens fashion optical (Brooklyn, NY) in January 2011.
I saw the job listing on Craigslist.org, and replied with my resume and contact info and was called back for an interview within a few days. There were two persons interviewing me in a very relaxed atmosphere. They were representatives of my former boss's franchisor. They were 'corporate' interviewers and were extremely pleasant and quite charming, the way a service oriented company is expected to be. I like the company except that one particular franchisee whom I worked for was highly unprofessional.
