Started off great, but then when you become really good at what you do, they take advantage of you for their benefits.

    poor advancement. they expect perfection for minimum wage. if you do get a raise its generally after you've worked for the company for years and its usually ten cents.

    Treat your employees better.

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

    Pros

    It was a great experience! You have a lot of repeat customers, so building relationships is pretty simple. I found personal enjoyment in the relationships I built with both coworkers and customers. The products were easy to make, and most of the time the pace was faster than it was slow, so the day went by pretty quickly. You really get a chance to share opinions or issues at seasonal meetings, which the managers never ignored. It was a fun, relaxed atmosphere most of the time.

    Cons

    Sometimes can be a bit unprofessional towards employees. Also, if you don't like jazz music, it's playing constantly (though lowly), as a forewarning (though I had no problem with it myself).

    Advice to Management

    Showing favoritism really insults the rest of the employees.
