    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Panera Bread.

    Interview

    Responded to a craiglist ad and did the interview with a manager. It was not stressful at all. He made it like a conversation. I responded like i did not care if i was hired or not and still got the job. After some questions he offered me a salary and i accepted the job after he said i was in. We shook hands and met again for paperwork. There were a few meetings and a tour.
