    I have been working at Panera Bread part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent hourly pay, good hours for a restaurant.

    Cons

    Management expects trainers to perform as managers, and blames them for things that are actually manangment issues.
    Reviews are not done on time, and you do not recieve raises when you are supposed to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your job or at least back up your trainers.

    I worked at Panera Bread part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    -fun job if you like working with food
    -fast paced, especially during the lunch rush

    Cons

    -hours standing on the hard floor can be feet killers
    -not the cleanest place
    -management is absolutely terrible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With more than 5 managers at the store, you'd think these guys could actually run a place. Get your crap together.
