Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Winchester, VA).

Interview

The interview was very laidback and calm. I was offered a drink by the friendly staff. It was during one of their down times so it wasn't super busy or loud. The manager was very upbeat and happy. One of the easiest interviews I have done in my adult life.

    Very easy. The general manager was very nice and actually listened to my answers. The whole process was extremely simple and stress free. I would definitely recommend applying to a Panera near you. There was only three people in front of me. My interview was at 4:25 and I was out of there by 4:35.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Williamsville, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and the next morning the GM called my reference then soon after she called me. On the phone she asked 2 questions: if I had reliable transportation and about my availability. After she asked me if I can come in later on that same day for an interview. I arrived about 10min before and met the hiring specialist who was very nice. He asked questions like "Tell me about yourself", asked if I was in school, asked about my previous jobs and why I left them, asked about previous co-workers that I got along with and the ones that I didn't. (Panera seems to focus on keeping the work place a friendly environment and have a little family) He then proceeded to talk a little more about how they only hire the best and if you actually do your job then the opportunities will come to you. After that he told me that he felt that I would be great for the production because he like my attitude and wanted to set up a 2nd interview with the GM the next day.

    I came in 5min early and she asked about my availability again and more typical behavioral questions that were real easy. After that she offered me the job on the spot and I should expect to hear from them soon.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email about three days later. The interview was very quick, lasting about ten minutes. It wasn't anything hardcore; the interview went smoothly. The interviewer was kind and reacted positively to my responses. I was told that I would receive a phone call if the higher-ups wanted to schedule a second interview with me. It has been a few days since then, so I am still waiting.
