Easy Interview

Application

I applied through other source. I interviewed at Panera Bread in September 2016.

Interview

Unprofessional operations/district manager said they had found my resume on indeed.com and wanted to "chat" about management opportunities. Email communication was elementary to say the least. Upon arrival I was asked if I wanted a beverage and given a paper application to fill out at a dirty table during busy breakfast hour. Manager was rude and not inviting even though I was sought out to I meet with her. Everyone seemed on edge. Why not give me a heads up about filling out paper work beforehand? After all, you emailed me to me the very same week. You didn't even confirm our meeting?! This sounded like a casual conversation from your short, uninformed emails. I was told you couldn't talk unless I completed app. First I've heard of that one used. Im happily employed but would be willing to consider any reputable company knocking on my door with management opportunities...however, don't be disrespectful. Are you hiring bodies or talents?

    Interview

    Easy to start but got harder as it progressed to people higher in company. Questions really make you think about why you want position. Grilled me for a while about background and what I could bring to the team and company as a whole

    Received text about hiring event and attended the following Monday. Signed in, filled out application, and waited for manager to call back for interview.
