    I worked at Panera Bread full-time (more than a 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
