Assistant Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Fayetteville, GA
Accepted Offer

Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Fayetteville, GA).

Interview

Simple sit down with members or recruiting and eventually the district leadership. Pretty standard for the restaurant business. They want to know about your experience and your attitude...and your salary expectations.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Mission, KS).

    Interview

    You will interview with a talent recruiter at either a training store or administrative office and they ask you pretty basic interview questions. If they offer the job you will then do 7 weeks of training at a training location before you know your "home" store.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Oklahoma City, OK) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Got a call from a recruiter who then set up the initial interview. After first interview they invited me back for a Realistic Job Preview, which is mostly a tour of the operations of the store. After this, they called to say they wanted to proceed with an offer, contingent upon a background check. That came back and they made an offer. The entire process took about 1 week. Very easy process, well run.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunset Valley, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Sunset Valley, TX) in May 2017.

    Interview

    First interview was rescheduled. When I showed up to the rescheduled interview, the district manager was unable to be there but didn't want to reschedule again so he had the general manager of the location interview me. Set up a second interview through the recruiter. Finally met with the district manager. After a short interview, he asked me to fill out a background check and told me that he would get back to me after the background check came back. Never heard from him or the recruiter, so after a week I called both of them and followed up with emails, but neither of them ever answered me.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Panera Bread in March 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, received a phone call within a week or so requesting a F2F interview, and met the Regional Manager at the store location.
    The interview was not stressful, but it was not super easy and informal either.
    Overall, the interview lasted over an hour.
    I was offered the position immediately after the interview, and salary negotiation coincided.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Port Saint Lucie, FL) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Walk in, sir and wait 40 min to answer some questions. Talk with the district manager because none of the stores no longer have managers because everyone quits Panera when working for covelli enterprises. They like to make it seem like it's okay but it really isn't okay

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    There was a 3 step interview process spread out over 3 weeks which seemed a little dragged out. You start with meeting the recruiter, then the Area director and then the director of operations.
