    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.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    I applied when the stores still utilized paper applications versus online assessments. So I went in and filled out the application. Once I completed the application I met with a manager who interviewed and hired me on the spot. However, the process has changed and now you must take an online assessment and fill out the application online. A manager or training specialist reviews the scores and based on your score and answers as far as the needs they are looking for they call you to set up an interview.

    Interview

    I got called for an interview, and was met by one of the managers. Fortunately for me it was one of the more easy going managers, and my cousin had worked there for a while and had a good reputation already. So after a few questions about my basic math abilities, and such, I was hired.
