I worked at Panera Bread part-time for 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.

    I worked at Panera Bread part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Interact with great customers. Work alongside fun and positive coworkers. Lunch break was always tasty! Fun rollout parties for new menu offerings.

    Cons

    Very fast paced. Lunch rush does not leave room for much error.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to reward employees because it takes hard work to keep up with customer demands!
