    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Panera Bread.

    Interview

    I applied online, was contacted the next day, and scheduled an interview for a week later. The interview was held at one of the tables there, so not too formal. Since there were many interviews scheduled that day and around the same time, the manager could only spend about 5 minutes per person asking questions - very quick and brief. I think the main drawback about me was that I could only work for the summer and they were looking for someone who could stay longer.

    Interview

    I applied online and that same day (Tuesday) I called the store which I applied to. I politely asked to speak to a manager and when directed to one, she looked up my name and found me application and I was asked in for an interview that Thursday. During my interview, she mostly asked questions about my schedule and availability since I am in college. When I told her my schedule she excitedly offered me the job and I took it. Orientation is this coming Tuesday and I will probably start Wednesday or Thursday! About a 1-1/2 week process from application to orientation!
