    We utilize our online hiring tools to find potential candidates.
    Once found, we give them a call inquiring if they would like to schedule an interview.
    During the interview, a set of questions is given to the potential candidate.
    If there are any second thoughts about the candidate, we schedule a second interview with another manager. If not, candidate is usually scheduled for orientation.
    If second manager finds the candidate sound, then we put him through orientation and get his paperwork filled out and set a training schedule.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Panera Bread in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Got a call for an interview on a Sunday which shocked me because that's not a business day. I took the interview way too seriously, I don't think you need to try hard to work there. They ask extremely easy questions, including the last question being what is your favorite food! I was told I would be called within a week and I was. I was offered the job over the phone and I was told when orientation was.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Ask how much you will be making! You shouldn't have to ask this, when they offer you the job they should tell you, but no one ever told me. Seriously, no one could even tell me. I had to wait until I got my first paycheck to know how much I was making an hour. That's bad business practices.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Panera Bread in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview took place one on one with multi-unit manager in-store and was not intimidating, but felt like just getting to know one another. Second interview took place with GM of potential location and was also one-on-one. Generally a good experience compared to board room and panel interviews.

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Panera Bread in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    I started out as a retail associate that was later on promoted to shift supervisor. My interview process was basically receiving a phone call informing me to go in for an interview. I sat and spoke to the hiring manager, no questions really except for why I quit my last job and my availability. He talked about the company and culture.
