I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Wildflower Bread Company in June 2013.
Interview Details – I submitted a resume/cover letter via Craigslist ad. I received a phone call the next day to come in for an interview. The woman I spoke with worked at the AZ "Corporate offices." I would describe her as direct, no nonsense, not personable via our phone conversation. She asked me to go onto the Wildflower website submit an application, but said the job I was applying for was so new that I should just post my information to any other job under the "Accounting" field. I did that and showed up for the interview the next day 15 minutes early.
When I arrived I was greeted by a receptionist who was less than warm and fuzzy and she gave me a 10 question, questionnaire to fill out. The questions were things like "who's your hero?" "what charitable organizations are you involved with?" "what is your dream job?" Etc, etc. I finished the questionnaire, my interview time came and I sat and waited another 15 minutes to be called in. When they were finally ready, I was greeted by 2 employees, the woman who set up the interview and a man who offered his name, but failed to identify his position.
From the get-go the interview can best be described as awkward. The woman proceeded to look through my questionnaire. She noted my answer to the dream job question, which I'd answered with "published author." She asked, "So published author, what's holding you back?" Aside from the fact that this was the first question asked, I found this borderline offensive and I don't see how this relates to my skill set in any way. I mean if the arts were paying the bills, would I really be looking for a job in the accounting field? I fumbled for an answer to this question and it was difficult to recover after this. Most interviews are a back and forth conversation, this felt much more like an interrogation with questions being asked in rapid succession and no commentary from the interviewers between questions creating a rapport. 98% of the questions were asked by the woman and the male just sat there, head down, expressionless, staring at a clip board. It was so awkward. If the male interviewer was put in the room to test me and make me uncomfortable to see how I react to this, it worked. I attempted several times to answer questions in his direction to no avail. When he finally said something, he still never made eye contact with,me.
I'm used to interviews being a conversation, an opportunity to communicate and get to know one another. The only thing this interviewer told me about the company was that everyone was like "Family." This must be a family short on words. If this is their mantra, then I suggest getting personable employees to conduct interviews, not personalities who appear as though they never speak to others. Truly awkward, felt like grilling by poor communicators rather than a constructive interview.
I was told I would be informed of application status either way. I sent a follow up email and received no response.

Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Wildflower Bread Company.
Interview Details – I found their add on Craigslist. Job fair. Went in. Interviewed with District Manager I believe. He said I would be hired and if I didn't get a call before the weekend was over, then I was to call him personally. I got his card. I didn't need to call him, Wildflower called me, asking me to bring in my social security card and such. Easy.
Interview Question – I was asked what I knew about Wildflower values. I answered fine, as I had reviewed them on the craigslist add and a few stuck out to me. But our values are really important to us, so if you have an interview, don't BS this question. Our values are awesome and apply to everyone both in and out of the work force. Find a few that really speak to you. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – If you're doing a good job, you'll be working hard. Don't cheat yourself. You're worth more than min wage. And this is a company that values it employees. So ask for what you think you're worth. Or maybe better, ask for what you're happy with getting after working your butt off all day.

Interview Details – Well I turned in my application online and received no call back, so I went into the store to get an application. I filled out the app and was told I would be contacted. About a week went by and nothing, so I called and was told they had not reviewed any applications. A few days went by and I called again, I was told to come in the following Wednesday for an interview. When I came in the guy who interviewed me took a while to come over and start. Basically he asked me about my availability, my work history and if I had done any volunteer work. Then he sent me on my way. A week went by and I did not hear anything from them so I called to be told they were looking for someone with more experience.
