    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.

    Negotiation

    I told them what I was currently making and they offered me just a bit more than what I was making. They seemed pretty negotiable at the time but I think its different depending on how much experience you have.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    No Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Au Bon Pain (Philadelphia, PA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I had an interview at the airport. Their manager came out to escort me in who was completely not friendly at all. Good thing I have worked at the airport so I know how ignorant some people are but more importantly, how the escorting process worked, otherwise I would have been lost!
    Whom I was supposed to interview with apparently didn't have time for me so sat me with his manager of that store who knew nothing about any of the questions I asked.
    It was a horrible interview process and I didn't get the position for whatever reason. Ironically enough, the manager I spoke with said she really liked me and would like for me to work with her!
    Onto the next..
