I applied online. I interviewed at Panera Bread (San Bernardino, CA).

Friendly staff you interview right there in the cafe you usually meet with a assistant manager and if they approve you will meet with the general manager right after. They will explain the job expectation and what you will need before you are hired such as food handlers card and work shoes ect.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Fayetteville, NC) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call from them about a week later. That call was considered a phone interview. They then scheduled a in store interview with the manager, called me about an hour after the interview to schedule my final interview with the general manager. The general manager hired my on the spot and then discusses the training process and pay which isn't too shabby($9.75). They interview consisted of basic questions so they can get a feel of the type of person you are.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Sanford, FL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    It was brief and simple and went by pretty quick. I sped up the process because I had my resume too. I spoke about my past and what I wanted out of the job. We spoke about my favorite menu item, as to make sure I was actually familiar with the place.

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Panera Bread.

    Interview

    It was very casual, the manager who interviewed me was very kind. They wanted to get to know you as a person, and not so much as how you are as a worker.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Panera Bread (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Nice, easy, quick. I think turnover is so high they are pretty desperate for hires. It was actually two interviews back to back. First one of the managers, and then one of the higher-up managers. Both interviews were about three minutes each I think. Didn't take very long at all.
