Customer Service Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Stuart, FL
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Stuart, FL) in April 2018.

Interview

I applied in store on a Saturday, and was sent an email on Wednesday to schedule an interview on either Thursday or Friday. I scheduled it for Friday at 8:45am, and when I came in I had to sign in, and there were 2 other people ahead of me for interviews. When it was my turn she took me to a table in the store and told me to calm down, that it was a 'meet and greet'. The lady that was interviewing me was so nice and easy to talk to, and was just asking me basic questions and taking note on me. I knew I got the job when she started going over the dress code with me, and after she finished going over the dress code she offered me the job, which I accepted.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Denton, TX) in November 2018.

    Interview

    I arrived about 15 minutes earlier than the scheduled time. Waited for 15 and the interviewer came to tell me that she had to cancel the interview with me because she already had interviwed and hired many applicants and there are no more openings, so she doesn't want to waste my time or put me under the stress of the interview. It is not professional at all. They are supposed to call me to tell me that instead of wasting my time to drive to the store. I had to rush to arrive on time because my daughter had an appointment just before the interview. it was a disappointment!

    One interview that was around 30 minutes, then the second round we basically discussed simple stuff like whether or not I've been convicted and etc. I interviewed at a rather far away panera bread location, but overall the process was very easy and the intervierer(my boss) was very nice.
