    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Norman, OK).

    Interview

    They just asked for my schedule and when I was free to work. They asked some other questions that were on my resume, but it was pretty simple. They were very friendly, offered a drink while we waited. My interview basically went straight on getting hired. They told me just to bring personal info, and I was hired on the spot.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Springfield, PA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    There were two interviews. Both were pretty laid back. They did not ask hard questions and the manager and I joked around a little during the first interview. The second interview had a different manager. I applied online and the next day they called and asked me to come in for an interview. The whole process took no more than two weeks for me to be put on the schedule.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Wayne, NJ) in June 2012.

    Interview

    It was fairly quick, they asked you why you applied and what you felt were the qualities of a good cashier. they asked if you would be able to deliver service with a smile and would cater to the guest's every need. It was real quick as I was a sophomore in high school. Nothing too intimidating.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Troy, MI) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Very informal and rushed. This is not a bad thing for me, but to others it may pose an issue. The manager that I was supposed to meet seemed rushed as he was interviewing me during his break. The whole process was ruched compared to other Panera employees. There was a lot of training in the second day of the process. I was not even an employee yet and I was working to "see what it is like".

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Bakersfield, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I came in at the right time, one of the employees told me that my interviewer was expecting me and offered me a drink. I had to wait for them to get my application. Although it was a quick interview she told me I was the only one with availability and that they had a full time position open.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Wauwatosa, WI) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Very laid back, the location I originally started at was in a mall, we did the interview in the food court instead of in the restaurant itself. They took me right away for the interview, there is nothing worse then having to wait for a long time when you have an interview.
