    You go in one on one with a manager and asked personal questions. They just wanted to get to know you more rather than ask behavioral questions. Just be honest and talk about what you do in your free time and stuff.

    Cashier Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Seven Hills, OH).

    Interview

    It was a simple, casual talk between myself and the location manager. It was very relaxed and very much a conversation that allowed ample time to elaborate on skills and experiences. This was just a summer job during undergrad, but the hiring manager was very understanding of my need for short-term work.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Panera Bread.

    Interview

    I first applied online where you had to answer basic questions and then fill out a questionnaire/ personality test. It was very detailed so make sure to set aside about 30 minutes to complete.

    After submitting my application it took a few weeks to hear back and set up an in-person, one-on-one interview. Following this interview, it took about a week and a half to hear back letting me know that I received the position.

    Delivery Driver Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Morrisville, NC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Morrisville, NC) in February 2020.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty easy. However, nobody called me the following day as promised. I was interviewed by 2 managers and have an impression that second person did not like me because I am an immigrant.
