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

Pros

Great people, great environment, and most importantly, great food.

Cons

CONSTANTLY stressed and constantly having to be working at an incredibly, incredibly fast pace.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay employees what they work for. Simple as that.

    I worked at Panera Bread

    Pros

    65% discount
    Free pastries or bagels at the end of the night

    Cons

    You will gain weight working here! It's a rite of passage. There have been many skinny people who begin working here and become very overweight. Make sure you know how to control your eating so this doesn't happen.
    This is a more upscale "fast food" place so customers are typically very rude and snobby, but this cannot be controlled
    Managers are usually very strict and controlling.
    You will typically work long hours, and closing at the end of the night could take anywhere from 1-2 hours. For example, if your Panera closes at 9, you likely will not go home until around 10:30.
