Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Panera Bread (State College, PA) in August 2014.

Interview

I came into the store location and told someone at the register I was here for an interview and gave the name of the individual I was interviewing with. I then sat at a table for about 15 minutes waiting for the manager to come and interview me. After I answered my last question, she hired me on the spot and had me sign my documents.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Panera Bread in April 2015.

    Interview

    Seen a Ad on Job Indeed, put a application in and like 3 days got a call, went for a interview, and then put in a official application and got a call back for the job. The process was slow! But they didn't make me wait until a background check to work.. I don't even know if they checked my background. It took like almost 3 weeks to actually start working.

    Just smile and nodd, look freindly, keep eye contact, expect the hiring process to be a little slow.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Catonsville, MD).

    Interview

    I walked in and told the cashier that I had an interview. She said okay and offered me a drink which I thought was nice. I waited at a table for the manager to come out and the interview was very brief and simple. He just asked me why I wanted to work at panera, what kinds of things I was into, stuff like that. He told me to come back the next week to speak with the general manager. That interview was brief was well and I was hired on the spot!
