    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 ManagementAdvice

    Be more selective when hiring management.
