Great concept. Ok on execution.

Assistant Manager (Current Employee) Albany, NY

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

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good place to work, If you like customers

    Associate (Current Employee) Papillion, NE

    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… Cons: Everything is about time (mainly about making more money for the company), the occasional bad customer, not always… Advice to Senior Management: Adjust pay scales, show that you can do the job better… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
