Once Eager Then Disillusioned

Sales Associate (Former Employee)
McHenry, IL

ProsI can not recall any pros.

ConsI was an older worker who was discriminated against.

Advice to Senior ManagementI 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
