I have been working at Panera Bread

ProsPanera is very particular about who they hire and especially with their management teams which is a good thing. The company is very pro-active, evolving, and open-minded, therefore it is these attributes that they look for in their management personnel as well as in the employees they hire which results in a very comfortable and friendly work environment.

ConsFast paced, which is not always a bad thing. It just means that you have to be able to utilize common sense, time management, attention to detail, a positive an enthusiastic approach to your work and a willingness to go above and beyond for the consumer. It's also important always have a sense of urgency, this helps you to insure that you will complete all your work in a timely manner and finish with in the scheduled shift you have been assigned. In other works, stay focused on your work, stay positive, organized, and friendly.......If you can do this, then not only can you work successfully at Panera, but you will also have opportunity for growth and advancement.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
