I have been working at Panera Bread part-time (more than an year)Pros
Some of the customers were also really sweet and friendly, and often brightened my day. Many of the regulars were older people who were also very nice and who would even offer to share their pastries with us. Very cute.
Also, you can form a strong bond with coworkers over your mutual hatred for Panera and occasionally (I'd just like to stress the "occasionally' here) get/sneak some free food.Cons
- Low pay; at least for this franchise, you start off making minimum wage, which isn't unexpected. You can be considered for a raise of up to 50 cents (ooh great) every six months depending on your performance but many of my best coworkers often received a "raise" of 8-12 cents... which doesn't make a whole lot of difference. I know people who have been working there for 3+ years and they're still only making about $8 an hour.
- No tipping allowed.
- Controlling management; often the manager sits in the back just watching the camera screens (which, rather than - facing out onto the store, record all of the employee's posts) and waiting for someone to screw up.
- Cleaning up after disgusting customers.
- 15% discount which ONLY applied to this Panera and no others since we worked for a franchise. Lame.
P.S. When you put your trash in the recycling bin, it only ACTUALLY goes into recycling about 1/3 of the time. The rest of the time we just toss those bags in with the rest of the trash. Sad, but true.Doesn't RecommendNo opinion of CEO
