    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Charlotte, NC) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I got hired as an associate, but the interview was fine. Everybody was nice and made me feel comfortable. They basically wanted to make sure that I had people skills, personality, and could answer questions without having to make to much effort. Also they asked about outside activities and what I liked to do on my on time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Birmingham, AL) in February 2013.

    Interview

    Recently applied online for a new store opening. Was called approximately 3 to 4 days after. I actually applied for several positions but once at the interview was asked about a shift supervisor position. The interview was with a General Manager. He was very friendly and pretty standard interview. I asked to come to another town for a second interview the start of the following week. I then interviewed with another General Manager at a large store. He was also friendly, but distracted. It was also a pretty standard interview. I thought it went well but was not offered anything. He stated that they would let me know one way or another but nothing ever was said. I actually called to check the status several days later and left a message but my phone call was not returned. I also sent a "thank you for interviewing me" letter but no response on it either. It's a shame because I had the qualifications and Panera Bread seems like a great company to work for. I was very disappointed.

    Shift Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in The Woodlands, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Panera Bread (The Woodlands, TX) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview went very smoothly, the hiring manager was eager to answer any questions and ready to hire before I'd even had the 2nd interview. I was told immediately that my "dressing for success" definitely called for brownie points. Most people showed up in shorts and t-shirts for an interview, which is a little too leisurely even if it is only a restaurant job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Panera Bread (Billerica, MA) in March 2019.

    Interview

    it was mainly a series of what ifs, explain a time when, how would you handle, questions. The interviewer was not personable and she was more concerned with placing me in a store I did not apply for.
