Average Interview

Application

The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Cutler Bay, FL) in March 2016.

Interview

Between 5-7 days I was called for a interview at multiple panera breads on the same day. At the first interview the woman was nice and was smiling constantly. At my second interview the assistant and general were great people and noticed it was my first job and complimented my smile.

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Port Saint Lucie, FL) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online at the end of one week and on Tuesday the next week I was called for an interview. The hiring manager was very cool and I was told I had the job but I had to check with my mom if I could stay until 11 because I am a minor. When I went back she was interviewing someone else (who I later learned got the job) and said she would call me. I waited a few days and she didn't call and for the next two weeks I called the store and they couldn't tell me anything because no paperwork was ever filled out. The manager was in the process of moving up in the company and I guess I just got lost in the process. Overall I have no hard feelings against Panera. I love the store and the atmosphere I'm just not a part of it. I was super nervous going into the interview and actually looked at other interviews on this website that helped get rid of my nerves. To all the other people out there getting worked up about going into an interview, it's not as bad as it seems and you'll do great! :)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Panera Bread (San Diego, CA) in April 2018.

    Interview

    It was quick, lasted maybe 15 minutes? The manager interviewing me was very nice but asked some odd questions. For example "if you were an animal, what kind would you be?", "what's your favorite color?". The whole thing felt kind of unprofessional and they only really seemed focused on the fact that I am still in high school with a very open schedule.
