    Interview

    I applied online but never heard from them again, not a single response to whether they wanted me for an interview or didn't. They should have at least let me know they didn't want me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Spring, TX).

    Interview

    You'll go into the store and usually sit down at a table with the district manager or possibly one of the co managers and they'll ask you a lot of questions about relationships with co workers and how you handle stress and if you're okay with rules changing constantly. They'll give you senarious that you'll have to answer such as "how would you handle a customer who is not satisfied with their purchase". Pretty easy interview, usually hires on the spot.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Panera Bread in September 2017.

    Interview

    I put in an application online, received a call back for an interview less than two weeks later. I went to my interview the next day. It was pretty easy, answered some basic questions from one manager, when she told me she'd have me talk with one of the assistant managers. I had a pleasant talk with him where we discussed my current job, my expectations for Panera, my wage request, availability. It didn't take long for them to tell me they thought I'd be a good fit and requested I attend orientation a few days later.
