I have been working at Panera Bread full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Fun work environment and good pay. Nice environment. Good food. Lots of fun regulars who you get to meet on a personal level.

Cons

Frustrating customers and associates. Neither one knows what they really want. Staffing can be really tight which leads to high frustration levels making it difficult to really give warm service. Not easy to come to this concept after full service restaurant experience.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Appreciate your associates to the fullest because they can get a minimum paying job elsewhere. Give them other reasons to stay.

    I have been working at Panera Bread part-time (less than an 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
