    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Boudin Bakeries (San Diego, CA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    My interview at Boundin Bakery was very easy and they just had a supervisor from the store sit down with me and ask me questions about myself, like what are your hobbies and past experience in customer service. Then the next day I met with the assistant manager, she asked me similar questions and then that week I started.

    Line Cook Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Santa Rosa, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Boudin Bakeries (Santa Rosa, CA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    I only had one interview, then they asked me to come in a week or so later to fill out paperwork. They really aren't too picky about who they hire, they just prefer some experience of any kind and a low hourly wage (they REALLY hate giving raises). I googled what the average line cook at Boudin made (came up as $10 an hour) and asked for that. They said it was "pretty high" although the minimum wage is to be increased to $10 an hour in California now within the next few years or so... Anyway, corporate came back and approved it, although another worker who is much slower and sloppier was making $14 an hour so maybe they approve anything.

    Interview Questions

    • "Why do you want to work for Boudin?" was the most "challenging" question, if you can consider that challenging. Other than that they just basically talk about your previous work.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The only negotiating was on hourly wage. I googled what the average line cook at Boudin made (came up as $10 an hour) and asked for that. They said it was "pretty high" although the minimum wage is to be increased to $10 an hour in California now within the next few years or so... Anyway, corporate came back and approved it, although another worker who is much slower and sloppier was making $14 an hour so maybe they approve anything.

This part of the interview lasted about 15 to 20 minutes.
