I worked at Panera Bread part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Learn how a well oiled machine of an operation works - especially during peak mealtimes.

Cons

You are a disposable stooge. Some employees that have worked for over 9 years still are making less than $9 an hour. Good for college students looking for a little extra income with flexible hours. The management leans pretty heavily from the top down and creates unnecessary stress.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The "everyday oasis" needs to start with you! Check your stress at the door before you enter.

    Pros

    Panera is fantastic to the community, they help in every way possible to end hunger locally. The work is rather easy, but the closing work is time consuming. The food is fantastic too.

    Cons

    The interview was terrifying, the manager is less than personable and intimidating. The company lacks in providing employee benefits and does not train personally, more training via slideshow presentations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Believe in your employees, encourage them!
