    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at American Apparel (Philadelphia, PA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Handed in my resume to the associate at the register, was told the manager was conducting interviews the following weekend and that they would get in contact with me. I was called by the manager later and told to come in at a certain time. Came in, chatted with her for about 15-20 minutes about the position. A very casual "on the spot" interview. Was told they would get back to me. Got a call the next day offering me the position and asked when I could start.
