    I worked at Patagonia full-time

    Pros

    Worked with amazing people that seemed to hold very similar beliefs about environmentalism and getting outside. Fun atmosphere and nobody took themselves too seriously, even including store managers and supervisors.

    Cons

    Holiday retail will never be fun at any store, though the "customer is always right" mentality does mean you really have to be on your toes during holiday seasons.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Patagonia.

    Interview

    Applied online, filled out a pretty hefty skills test, heard back quickly and went through two rounds of phone interviews before being made an offer. Recruiters were very friendly to work with. First call was with my manager and recruiter, second call was with my manager and his manager (recruiter couldn't make the second one).
