    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Panera Bread in August 2016.

    Interview

    They asked me to sit down and the manager would meet with me. It was a really easy interview. It was mostly just to get to know you and your availability. My goal in every interview is to smile and make them laugh as much as possible. At the end of the interview, she told me I got the second interview she just would call me to tell me when. The following week, I had an interview with the General Manager. He just made sure that the availbilty was true to what he heard. After, we just had a normal conversation. He asked where else I applied and why I chose Panera Bread. It was really casual and comfortable. The GM told me to email him a week later to follow up. Right away, he emailed me back saying I got the job and to earn my Food Hander's Card.
