    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.


  2. Fantastic First Job

    Pros

    Friendly Co-Workers
    Easy-Going Environment
    Pretty Simple Work
    Room To Improve - Cross-Training is easy to get, and it's simple to become valuable to the company
    Decent Pay - Started at 8 dollars an hour
    Friendly, Conversational Interviews

    If you have any kind of Customer Service skills or are simply capable of being friendly, Panera is a good place to start. They also hire 16 and up, so it's good if you're 16-18 looking for a job.

    Cons

    The occasional Snooty Customer, Panera is definitely known for they're old people and rich people, just sometimes customers who clearly have never had a customer service job and have no sympathy for the associates, but they're few and far between. Most customers are actually surprisingly friendly.
    Manager's are scolded if they help the staff with floor work

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your employees, and let managers work if need be
