    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Au Bon Pain (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    It was a pretty straight forward interview. I met the Area Director and he asked pretty general questions regarding management, qualifications, and skills. If they like you they have you take an online test. After taking the test I had a phone interview with the Regional Vice President. He asked very general interview questions and went over the online test results. The next day the Area Director called me back and offered me the job.
