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

Pros

Make sure everyone is well trained which builds some moral and comradery (as much as you can get working entry level in food industry)

Of course, discounted food is a good perk and Panera has great food.

The management I worked for was nice and tolerant

Customers were generally very nice and the store i worked at was busy so it stayed moving

Cons

They were nit picky about clocking in and out for half hour at lunch, food discount is good not great...
Pay isnt great, but I wasnt expecting it to be
overall not many complaints though

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

    Pros

    Great, healthy food. For the most part, staff is very friendly, hard working and a pleasure to work with. The actual work was challenging and therefore enjoyable. Never boring.

    Cons

    Company currently settling a class action suit for break violations. Nearly worked myself to death as a graveyard baker. The job is extremely demanding. I felt that I was working for half of what I was worth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more $$$ for you and your employees.
