I have been working at Panera Bread

Pros

Free drinks and coffee
Discount on food
Free bakery items after closing
Great people to work with
Nice atmosphere
Coworkers will help you adjust to working anywhere

Cons

Sick of food after a few weeks
A new employee hired every day
Different managers every day
Pay is too low
Cutting hours, not enough for everyone
Some managers are JERKS
Customers are extremely RUDE and MEAN and completely RIDICULOUS

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Schedule should be available online, always calling or coming in on days off is extremely annoying for some just to get our schedules
Starting pay should be higher and equal for everyone until they prove themselves capable
STOP BEING JERKS
NO YELLING, KEEP IT CIVILIZED

    The management likes to pretend it's a 5 Star restaurant but pay you like it's McDonalds.

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Easy to get hired.

    Cons

    Low pay (most start at minimum wage or within 25 cents). Few opportunities for raises. Management is incredibly useless and often gets in the way of normal activities, such as making food and cleaning up. Management also very unpleasant during normal interactions. High expectations with little reward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay higher wages. Stick to managing and don't interfere with production.
