I worked at Panera Bread part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

I can not recall any pros.

Cons

I was an older worker who was discriminated against.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I wasn't allowed to learn new things and the other workers were allowed to make fun of me. I am a college graduate who just needed a part time job. I wanted to go full time and was not allowed to. Only the younger people got the chances at promotions such as assistant manager. A lot of companies are learning that the older worker has a better work ethic and has a lot to offer any company. Panera does not take advantage of this.
