    I arrived to the first interview to be told that my interviewer is too busy to interview me. This shows that they have little respect for my time and poor management skills. This was highly unprofessional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Panera Bread.

    Interview

    You sit down with a manager at one of the cafe tables. They will ask you questions about experiences (not required) and how you feel about/what you would do in specific scenarios. Then they move on to availability. Most everyone is hired at this location. It comes down to more of how you do in the first week or two while training. It is important to see if you are good at receiving information and learn from instructions.
