Merchandiser Interview (Neutral Experience)
I applied in-person - interviewed at Franz Family Bakery in April 2013.
Interview Details – Found a job listing online, went to the main office to fill out a paper application as the listing instructed, then got a call the next week even though I was told it would take two to three weeks. I went to the depot where I was to be interviewed, waited for the two customers in front of me to finish, and had the cashier lead me to the office in the back. I was told it would be more like a casual conversation but it was definitely a typical interview. My interview was on a Friday. I was told that I would hear from them by the end of the next week if I got the job.

Route Sales Representative Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Franz Family Bakery.
Interview Details – Application and interview process was a little difficult - all hiring is officially handled through the state employment agency who told me I wasn't qualified and sent me away. I contacted the sales supervisor through the salesman who serviced where I was working before and was allowed to fill out an application. Interview process was pretty standard.
