Average Interview

Application

The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Panera Bread.

Interview

Phone interview, two sit down interviews. Both sit downs were relatively long (30-45 min each). Once I was hired there was some communication error-i had to call to confirm I was actually hired after a week between being told I was and no follow up.

Interview Questions

  • It was a relatively long time ago and I couldn't give a definite. I just remember being asked about how I would react to very specific guest situations.   Answer Question

Negotiation

Make sure you are firm about how much you want, and don't short change yourself. The hours you put in after training will be long (if you are dedicated) and if you don't ask for enough it will not be worth it for you, particularly if you had never been in a salaried position previously.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Tey are aggressively hiring in my area: they have a sign outside the door and ads on Craigslist and other locations. I saw the ad for assistant manager on Craigslist and applied. Some days latter got an email or a call (I can't remember) to come in for an interview. I originally met with the district manager and after the interview referred me to hr.

    The interview was sweet and short. Casual and friendly. It was in their restaurant, right in the dinning room. I made sure to market all my skills that would make me a good candidate for the positioned. I also mentioned that I just graduated from school with a business management and I'm ready to dive in to expand my career (now that I don't have school holding me back). I think that was one of the selling points: they want to see ambitious individuals who are willing to "pay the price" to get to the top. They are opening new stores in this area and they promote from within, so when they hire for assistant managers position... They are also looking for GM material..

    Later that week I got a call from HR to take my drug test. After that they made a salary offer of 33k. Not ideal, but when you consider free meals, 45hr weeks (maybe a few hrs extra here and there, but so far, I havent seen crazy hrs) plus a reputable brand, great atmosphere and training... It's very fair for my first career job. Moreover, you are eligible for benefits including store bonus after 90 days

    Was called by a reginonal hiring recruiter because they found my resume on Monster.com. She loved me and set me up with second interview with which I now know was the District Manager. He never called me back, so I deciede to start there as a regular employee and work my way up. On paper I was everything they were looking for, however they wouldnt hire or promote me because of my apperance.
