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

Pros

Work with really nice people, and serve mostly really good customers.

Cons

They worry about their "image" and expect you to lie to customer to protect that. I feel guilty about working and making money off of lies, even if I let someone else do it. That is how any job with a corporation will go though it seems.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want to keep the good ones, talk to corporate about not making lying a part of the job. Even after speaking with a manager I still felt that there was no way around it and that I need to lie to keep my job. I really, really loved my job until this part.

    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 .
