Application

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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Boston, MA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I filled out an application online, and within a few days, I got a call for an interview the next week. That day, I arrived 15 minutes early for a 9:30am interview, but since the store seemed to be short of staff, the manager ended up being a bit late. The interview itself wasn't bad. The manager read questions from a list, and seemed pretty distracted while I was answering them, which made me feel pretty bad about how I was doing. I ended up getting hired on the spot, but since I had more interviews that week, the manager told me that I could call back if I still wanted the position. I called a week later to accept, then the manager told me that they had thrown away my file because they thought I didn't want the job. I said that I wanted to accept the job offer, but the manager told me that they needed to look for my file, and that they'd call me back after finding it. I never heard back from them. I know that the best thing for me to do is to call back and ask, but I just don't think it's worth it at this point.
