I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Walking Company Holdings (Farmington, CT) in November 2016.
Very unprofessional and disorganized from start to finish. They lost all my paperwork and application and made me fill out a new one on the spot. When I asked for clarification on certain questions which didn't even make sense, the manager told me to just skip over them. Then they didn't even know my correct name or its spelling. The interviewing manager was extremely young, inexperienced, and unprofessional. They offered me the job bud I decided not to accept.
