I applied online. I interviewed at Panera Bread.

Interview

Pretty basic questions, very easy to talk to the manager. My only complaint is that she never followed up. Make sure that you have good communication skills and fresh ideas.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Indianapolis, IN) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Very informal, immediately told me that they were not hiring for the position I wanted and then offered to make me a delivery driver. Hardly any interview questions at all because they are so understaffed they're hiring anybody.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Tulsa, OK) in July 2015.

    Interview

    They really took the time to get to know me in my interview. I applied for Catering coordinator, but after talking with me decided I would be much better fit for Shift Supervisor. There was a two part process. I talked with the recruiter first and then I went back to talk to the G.M. on a separate occasion. I also had internal interviews with HQ and the district manager. All were very nice.

    Interview

    I knew someone. I was called to interview with her. Then her boss and the catering regional manager interviewed me and within a week I was hired. It was very easy but getting started on the job and gaining info about benefits was another story.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Wausau, WI) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Super Informal. Right away, store manager informed me the position was not available. I thought he was being polite, just by telling me the "want ad is posted permanently" they really were not looking to hire anyone. I had to get to the bottom and I verified the want ad is posted permanently. Don't recommend to waste valuable job search time.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Southbury, CT) in August 2012.

    Interview

    You submit the application online, you must take and pass the assessment. You are then called and given one interview, if you pass you move to the second interview. If chosen you will fill out all the necessary paperwork and then attend PLANET BREAD. Once that is done you begin your training where each day as long as you are training you will receive a free meal so you can sample all the good things Panera serves. After training you will be tossed into your position. Sink or swim! You are now a Panera employee.
