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

Pros

Well managed, good training, at the end of the night they donate all uneaten food to charities.

Cons

Bad discount. You only get a discount on up to $10 of food during your shift--so any other time you come you have to pay full price. Also, as a cafe cashier (rather than bakery) I was responsible for all the cleaning too--bathrooms, cafe area, drink station--it was much more work than the other employees had to do at closing time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better distribution of responsibilities at closing/opening, show more appreciation to your employees with a better discount!

    Pros

    Great culture of people working here, my managers were flexible and easy to get along with. The quality of their food is good. They make their bread/pastries fresh everyday & if there are left overs, they either go to a charity that comes and picks them up, or staff get to take home baked goods.

    Cons

    Not too many that I can think of.
