I have been working at Panera Bread part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Classy atmosphere, good company culture/values, sit-down rather than fast food feel.

Cons

Snobby clientele and overly expensive food, no proof of the existence of the "merit-based pay" they tout during the interview, quarterly "training sessions" are a joke (but mandatory and announced three days in advance.) My managers hired me knowing I was a student with a class schedule to abide by, but they continually schedule me too late and hold me over. Scheduling in general is a mess at this particular store.

Advice to Management

Be more selective when hiring management.

    Pros

    The IDEA of Panera and it's originality was great.

    Cons

    Too much changed over time. It's no longer the culture it once was. Incompetent District Managers that are dishonest and lack integrity.

    Advice to Management

    Love the job and forget about the company
