Very Corporate, lots of promises and no guarantee for promotions.

Current Employee - Shift Supervisor in Saint Louis, MO
Current Employee - Shift Supervisor in Saint Louis, MO

I have been working at Panera Bread full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Very flexible with schedule, free meals, great fun people to work with.

Cons

Very hard to move up past shift supervisor, they hire upper management from outside of company and do not promote within company. Very high stress environment for low pay. Communication between corporate and management is very poor, no one ever knows what's going on with new changes. Very bad technological advances. Computer system is always crashing during high volume times and angry customers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of your people instead of always worrying about numbers.

    I have been working at Panera Bread part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The discount is really nice, and the employees are so kind.

    Cons

    All the managers tell you different things so you never know if you're doing something right. One of the managers never lets you go when you're supposed to be off for unecesarry reasons. Everything is so unorganized. Also, the same manager that never lets me off is extremely rude and immature for an adult. I feel so uncomfortable like im always doing something wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train better! Have a better attitude and act like you want to be working at panera. Just because you're a manager, does not give you the right to be extremely hateful and rude for no reason; respect your employees.
