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

    Pros

    The food is great and most of the people I work with are good. I like the environment of the place.

    Cons

    Upper management walk around barking orders and do not help when you are busy. Do not have a good work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work the trenches once in a while to see what it is like. Don't just stay on your computer or phone and then think you know what is going on, because you do not. CLUELESS!!

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

    Pros

    Discounted foods, and pay is slightly above minimum wage.

    Cons

    Hours are not guaranteed, and shifts change constantly. Too many Employers don't last and their changes on the menu and how the work is done happen to frequently. Employers do their jobs so many different ways its hard to work together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See what works before trying new things every three or so weeks. Or think critically before making changes that end up not working.
