I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Candy Kitchen in May 2011.
I originally inquired about the job in-person, which I think is beneficial with smaller companies like this one. I returned 3 days later to meet the manager, who took my application. I received a phone call a few days later to schedule an interview, which I went in for 2 days after. The interview was short, and not intimidating at all - the manager made it fun. They mainly asked about people skills, ability to work under pressure, ethical concerns (e.g. how you would react if you witnessed a coworker steal), and willingness to work as a team member. I would advise any other candidates to show up early, be friendly, and sell yourself as a fun and helpful person. I was impressed with the casual nature of the interview, the manager's sense of humor, and the laid-back environment overall.
