- No OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Houston, TX) in June 2015.
I got called for an interview two days after submitting my application online but was rescheduled to a few days later. The interview process was less than 10 minutes (Felt like it was less than 5). I felt as if the woman who interviewed me wasn't really interested in me. She basically just went over the application I filled online and then asked me the basic questions along with a scenario.

I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Houston, TX) in June 2014.
First interview was basic questions and a bit about myself. Very comfortable and easy going, much better than I expected. Second interview was more detailed information mainly about my past work experience and scenarios. General manager asked me some questions afterwards and clarified everything about working at Panera. I was hired on the spot (second interview) and given an orientation date/time.
No negotiation, everything is set.
- No OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Houston, TX) in November 2010.
The guy was really nice, friendly. He asked me to tell him about myself and asked if I'm and school and about my schedule. He also asked what type of foods I like and if I've tried their food. It was a great interview, I felt very comfortable. He said that I was definately one of the people they were going to hire. He asked about my availability and talked to me about the training. He said that he would call in a few days to set things up. I never got a call back

I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Houston, TX) in October 2008.
I handed in an application that I filled in-store... they are pretty much always hiring since they can't seem to keep their employees. I sat down with one of the managers at a table in the store, he looked over my application and we talked a little bit about work/life balance (ha!) and salary. Hired on the spot.
- None of the questions were hard. I don't even think I had questioning from them. You basically just need to be smart enough to function normally to work here. 1 Answer
