When I got hired, I initially went into the store and sat with the manager to go over a few things. Then, you get sent to a "class" called Planet Bread. For me, it was 4 hours of watching videos and learning the company's ideals/values/whatever. It felt kinda silly and you can really just zone out most of the time.

"Orientation" here is just shy of one hour. It consists of the GM boasting about all the fantastic sales the location does and how badly they need someone JUST LIKE YOU to agree to become part of their team. After that you get scheduled a whopping 18 hours each week!
Now if the definition of "orientation" has changed to blatant DECIETFUL bull out of PANERA BREAD, my personal integrity won't allow me to lie and state it even exists.
