Typical Interview Questions
The Einstein Bros. Bagels hiring process historically consists of a single job interview in 1:1 format. Lasting anywhere between 30 minutes and an hour, the interview uses industry-standard and company-specific questions designed to provide basic profiles of aspiring workers. Hiring managers may ask any number of interview questions ranging from "Do you work well with others?" and "How would you handle a difficult customer/coworker?" to "Why does Einstein Bros. Bagels appeal to you?" and "Can you describe yourself a little bit?"
Be a People Person
Most interview questions prove relatively easy to answer and revolve around personal interests and motives for work. The coffeehouse chain simply desires applicants able to engage in friendly conversation and speak well with the attending managers. Casual to business-casual attire often proves appropriate for Einstein Bros. interviews. Examples of acceptable outfits include khaki pants and button-down shirts or conservative skirts and blouses. The ability to effectively work as part of a team carries more importance than the appearance of a prospective worker, though applicants should pay some attention to grooming and personal hygiene prior to any face-to-face interview.
Are there exceptions for age requirement? I’m 15 but I’ll be 16 in 3 months, I have access to transportation and I have an extremely flexible schedule because I’m an online (homeschooled) student. So for three months I may not be able to work more than 18 hours a week, but I can still work during times that other teens would not.
