Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Good if you like baked goods. Good experience if you want to go into the fast food industry. Very Popular. Good experience with high volumes. Could possibly be OK depending on your location and supervisors.

Cons

Lofty expectations from both customers and corporate. High quality of life and opportunity for growth presented during recruitment and training but ultimately not delivered. Bottom line is that the promises for growth in the company and quality of life are a dangling carrot.

Advice to Management

Have the actual culture and internal atmosphere of Panera bread match the concept essence

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great discounts on food, relaxing atmosphere to work in, even during rushes, good relationships formed with coworkers, good insurance program if you work enough hours.

    Cons

    It may vary by store, but personally scheduling is a bit loopy, rushes can get ridiculous ans scheduling time off can be a bit of a hassle,

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your employees, keep them in the loop, offer feedback when needed and swiftly. And definitely keep up with your crew. Nothing's worse than a no-show and the no-show not even being contacted or disciplined.
