I have been working at Panera Bread part-time for less than a year

Pros

Fast paced, decent pay, managers recognize the work you do, if you work hard you get the hours you need. I love that because it is so fast paced, even if there isn't a line (which isn't often) there is a lot you can be doing, so you never are bored just waiting for customers. I'm also very appreciative of how observant the management (at my store at least) is, I'm a hard worker, and usually I get zero recognition but not here! I've been here less than 3 weeks and I'm already being spoken to about advancement opportunities.

Cons

it is very very fast paced, which can get tiring but it makes the day FLY! You have to deal with some cranky and or needy customers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

So far I have no complaints. I would recommend for the POS that there be a build a sandwich option, from the bread up. A LOT of customers just want this meat with this cheese on this bread and blah blah that is nothing close to any of the menu options. I think this would be GREAT :)
