    I worked at Panera Bread full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get a good discount, and some co-workers are really great but thats about it.

    Cons

    hours, managers are rude and lack respect for their employees, and they're training to work their is ridiculous once you complete your training you end up quitting so it was for nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect .

    I have been working at Panera Bread part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hours Available if you really want them decent starting wage (for a first job of course) As i am of similar age as other employees i love the people i work with decent discount on some above average food during my shifts

    Cons

    Mine is horribly understaffed (22 employees when we should have 40) Hard to get shift coverage (especially closing) if 2/3 managers are closing because they are sticklers once you help them out and cover shifts you are forever bombarded with calls on off days asking to cover shifts customer base feels very entitled and not always fun to deal with place unrealistic expectations on (essentially) minimum wage workers in terms of ticket times and accuracy and such. will coax/guilt you into helping them out as much as possible with little incentive and as soon as you come in show no gratefulness for you and treat you awfully Very X theory managment creates alot of turnover (almost half of the staff has changed in the 3 month since i have been there)

    Advice to Management

    meet employees half way and dont be surprised that we dont want to help you out when you keep deceiving us
