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

    Pros

    panera typicallly has wonderful regulars who genuinely care about how you are doing

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    When it was just the regular employees, things were fun. Training is fun.

    Cons

    Managers are always in the back on the computer, which makes it hard when you are new. The only two cool managers got transferred. The ones that were left liked to make you feel like crap. almost NO hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get off the computer and actually do some work
