Panera Bread Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Stuart, FL
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Panera Bread (Stuart, FL).

Interview

I applied and called a few days later and decided to go to the store. I went in to speak to the hiring manager and it turned into an interview! She told me to come back the best day to have an interview with the general manager. Over the phone the general manager sounded very nice but during the interview he was very mono tone and didn't seem interested. I called the next day just to thank him for the interview and before I got a sentence out he said "Well I sat down with everyone and I think I'll pass." A very unprofessional man.

    Interview

    Put in an application online, and got called later on the same day. Went in for an interview two days later, where it lasted for about an hour between two managers. They made everything very clear, and asked all your usual interview questions. I went back a second time for paperwork, then a third time, and the fourth time back I worked my first day.

    I took the offer of $7.50, as its above minimum wage and isn't bad considering the pay.
