    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Black Dog (Chatham, MA) in May 2016.

    I knew the store Manager from past employer. She called me on phone to offer me the job. We met 3 days later in Chatham. The same day I met with District Manager in another store the same day. We spoke for 15 minutes and I was hired the same day.
