    I worked at Panera Bread full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    4 work nights, 3 days off; 65% employee discount; 10 buck meal credit per shift; good health benefits

    Cons

    What I personally experienced, it's really easy NOT to get a bonus after being evaluated by a training lead baker; it mostly depended on their personal "likes/dislikes". Their friends/ employees consistently got bonuses though

    Former Employee - General Manager in Houston, TX

    I worked at Panera Bread full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I didn't have the opportunity to work for a corporate Panera location, but the franchise I worked was big on promoting from within. Several people started out as associates and worked their way into upper management.

    Cons

    Again this was for a franchise, but the bonus plan changed every year. One year it's based on sale/profit the next it's only food cost/labor.
