Its really an easy job, but don't always expect recognition

Assistant Manager (Current Employee)

Prosflexible 45 hour work week, free meals, tremendous growth opportunity.

ConsMisleading hiring terms and Extreme favoritism on the store and area level. Basically, if your not in the favor of upper management or around when they are to see you, it doesn't help you no matter how hard you've worked for them. They single out kiss ass employees for promotions regardless of their ability or work ethic. which is pretty pathetic. My self and other former employees were promised rapid advancement and then left for dead after a short time.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease review the reason behind high turn over on the associate and store manager level.
Panera bread has many tools available to help assist district managers and general manager in people development , but its put to the way side. Look at your district managers and their hiring and retention track records. Take the warm survey a little more seriously.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
