    I worked at Panera Bread full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    the discount was amazing! 65% off anything under $10.
    Coworkers all got along, all friendly and funny people. Made a lot of friends.
    I loved what Panera stood for. I loved giving away the left over pastries to soup kitchens! Most restaurants do not do this.
    The food is amazing!
    Gave me a great experience with dealing with people, good first job!

    Cons

    lunch rush was always terrible.
    customers who were rude or complained about their orders.
    long hours as a cashier or line person. I worked 11-7 a lot.
    people called out a lot and managers expected workers who worked all day to pick up their closing shift.
    surveys. The managers took surveys very seriously, sometimes too seriously.
    Managers did not understand employees had a life outside of Panera and always expected us to work.
    Rarely got out of work on time and sometimes went all day without breaks.
    closing dining room or dish.
