High stress for the pay

Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
Boston, MA

ProsGood 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.

ConsLofty 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 Senior ManagementHave the actual culture and internal atmosphere of Panera bread match the concept essence

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
