    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Apparel (Santa Monica, CA).

    Interview

    After getting an email for a set time, I went into the apparel store and sit in a folding chair between racks and then you answer a few questions. It was very casual and only took a few minutes of chatting with the manager and sales clerk.
