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

    Pros

    Set schedule if you're in management and flexible hours. Almost any request off is honored.

    Cons

    Lowest pay. They'll try to pay you $8.00 for a shift supervisor and try to get you to do manager salary work. No gratitude for any of your work, schedule you back to back closing to opening and they never honor their after every 6 months "review" for a raise. I only got a 50 cent raise after 2 years. They gave another girl who had been working there for 4 years a 15 cent raise...just terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Happy employees only benefit the only thing you care about, your bonuses. Stop ridiculously high turnover by actually paying your employees what they deserve and praise them for good work instead of berating them in front of customers.

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

    Pros

    good benefits, good group of workers, food is really good, could get all the hours you want since there wasn't any one else wanting them

    Cons

    management dosent' like each other and told each other so, often. Was told I would work one day then it would be changed, not allowed to work in other areas of the store
