I worked at Panera Bread part-time (less than a year)

Pros

Hard working co-workers and flexible hours. Amazing cleanliness with a true commitment towards satisfying their customers. Thorough training process

Cons

Terrible management who hated their jobs. Every shift i felt we were understaffed, with most times managers cutting employees shifts even if it meant placing a unfair work load on another employee. Overworked their employees for the wage a associate was paid.
