It does not take long at all. You can fill out an application in-store or online, and the hiring manager will contact you for an interview. You may be set up for a second interview, depending on the store or position applied for. If hired on, your first day will consist of paperwork and videos, then bam, you're aboard.

Hiring process is pretty quick. I had applied and then a few days later I had a scheduled interview. The interview was pretty quick - I got hired on the spot. As far as dressing up for the interview, nothing extremely fancy is required but you are expected to look nice just like any other interview.
