Great Part Time Work, but that's about as far as you go

I have been working at Panera Bread part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Flexible scheduling, works well with college students to create very friendly environment. A great place to work on nights and weekends, as most locations do not stay open too late (rarely leaving after 10:30). Ability to transfer from [Corporate] location to location without a hitch.

Cons

Some of the biggest downsides of the company are the fact that there is little or no tuition reimbursement for collegiate associates, and little opportunity for upward movement after graduation. After putting upwards of 4 years into the company, my options are limited to putting more time into hourly work as a supervisor or leave.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work with associates pursuing higher degrees to help them find possible positions in corporate or management while they are still with the company. Offer internships to employees in related programs, not hidden in some career website, if at all.

    I have been working at Panera Bread full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The money is decent, my location was very flexible as far as getting an evening off if you needed it

    Cons

    Blatant favoritism from higher management. NO reviews, you just kind of have to figure out how you are doing on your own. The "review" for a manager is how well you run your shift, which is the exact same one for a supervisor.

    Pros

    There are a lot of nice workers here. You get 50% off on your break and they are pretty flexible with availabilities.

    Cons

    Lately they are understaffed. The managers can be rude .
