    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Patagonia (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I asked Patagonia in person if they were hiring, I was handed an application. The manager said to come in on the following Monday for an interview.

    I came in that Monday, and was interviewed by himself and an assistant manager.

    It was comfortable but I don't think I was given a chance.
