    Applied online, got a call a couple months later. Interview was casual and pretty short, most of the questions asked were about availability. Some customer service scenario questions. Was told that I would get a call for a 2nd interview, but ended up getting hired a week later w/o the 2nd interview. Went in a few days later to fill out paper work.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Paradise Bakery & Café (Carmel, IN).

    Interview

    The interview was very informal, and the store manager was very rude and degrading about his employees during our discussion. That store manager no longer works there, as I am told.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were short and simple, and mostly related to whether I was available whenever they wanted and would accept the low wage. The manager also told me outright that employees are not allowed to receive raises. Ever.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiations, which is normal for the service industry. It's basically "do what we want, or we won't hire you."

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Paradise Bakery & Café.

    Interview

    very thorough and concise. The overall process took about a total of twenty one minutes and ended quick after that. I received my job placement the following week . The interviewer was pretty unclear as to who he was or what his role in the whole process was. I was not sure if they were a manager or a supervisor, but they seemed to be in charge at the moment.
