    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Chicago, IL) in July 2017.

    Interview

    They had called me on Thursday to schedule an interview on Saturday at 7 AM When I arrived at the interview the manager wasn't even there. He doesn't start till 9am, so I just left my number with the assistant manager to see if I can reschedule, apparently he had put down my interview for 10 AM when he said seven over the phone so not only did I miss my interview but I'm not getting a job over the phone so not only did I miss my interview but I'm not getting a job neither.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Cincinnati, OH).

    Interview

    Sat one-on-one with manager, he asked questions from a sheet and I answered them. Was not too difficult, but it was a Panera interview. I believe most locations hold open interviews every week, and many times they do not need new employees, such was the case at this location. I was not hired.

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Panera Bread.

    Interview

    Very quick. Went into the store and introduced myself to the assistant manager. I got a call back to schedule an interview a couple days later. The managers I spoke to in person and on the phone were very nice and accommodating to me being a seasonal worker for the summer. I applied Online because it is faster than applying in person then went to the store and introduced myself with a resume. I would recommend doing this.
