Deb told me about the following exchange she recently witnessed at the counter of a Panera:
Guy in front of her in line: "Can I fill out an application for a job here?"Deb says she also heard pretty much the same exchange at a White Castle.
Panera employee: "Sorry, you have to apply on line."
Guy in front of her in line: "But I don't know how to use the Internet."
Panera employee: "If you can't use the Internet you can't work here."
(Glassdoor reports that the wages of hourly Panera employees average less than $9. They have a very small sample for White Castle but apparently a "team member" can make less than $8.)
