    I have been working at Panera Bread part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Plenty of interaction with people, coworkers are usually great, great job if you are looking for something part-time, or while in college

    Cons

    Everything is about time (mainly about making more money for the company), the occasional bad customer, not always paid appropriately (I made more than my trainers on my first day than they did after 2 years)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adjust pay scales, show that you can do the job better before complaining, and don't be afraid to do some work as well
