    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Atlanta, GA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    The process went well. I originally applied for a different position, but the General Manager told me they were looking for cooks so I took it. We talked about scheduling and payment and what not. Nothing struck out as being out of the ordinary about the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • It was all pretty standard stuff like "Why do you want to work for Panera?" and "How would you be a good fit for the company?" and "Are you alright with cross-training?"   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Wasn't a long interview. Started with education and future plans of education, then it went on it to former employment history and personal skills. Every new topic ended with somewhat of a more interpersonal conversation I guess to evaluate my social skills. At the end we spoke about hours of availability and I was told I had the job. I'd say its all up to the way you present yourself.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Panera Bread in February 2014.

    Interview

    Pretty laid back interview. Was much like a conversation to get to know me and how I would handle certain situations. It was informal I just wore a collared shirt and nice pants. It was easy to tell which way the interviewer was leaning on whether he was going to hire me or not. Overall, it was a very basic and easy interview. Nothing to worry about.
