    I have been working at Panera Bread part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Young staff, fairly easy work, friendly staff, very flexible with schedules, large staff (which can be a con too) in case you need someone to cover for you, they accept you back after you quit if you are in need of a job, you can take the job anywhere you go, they let you make your own creative name tag

    Cons

    The pay is terrible, a lot more stressful than other jobs (restaurant jobs are always stressful however), you have to shave before every shift (if you're a guy), the work gets annoying after a while (but this is true with pretty much any job), you only get a discount before, during, or after a shift, not on a day off

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees to come in on a day off and get a discount and raise the pay

    Pros

    You can take home food at the end of the night depending on the manager. Its the only benefit to the night shift.

    Cons

    There is a lot of waste. The company emphasizes quality at what cost? They throw a lot of things away, in regards to food. It's a shame.
