I worked at Panera Bread part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Got experience in a fast-paced quick-serve restaurant. Worked my butt off and consistently rang $1000 days with almost-perfect accuracy.

Cons

Hours can be brutal. My store was chronically understaffed due to high turnover. Repetitive work performed while standing on concrete floors.
I wanted to love working there because I like the food, but there was no incentive to stay- after 9 months I got a measly 13-cent per hour raise. Employer offered healthcare is expensive and doesn't cover much.

    I worked at Panera Bread

    Pros

    Free Panera for lunch, that's about it.

    Cons

    The manager didn't seem to care and were not that friendly. Didn't bother to teach you anything and kind of left you on your own. Turnover rate is crazy high.

    Great coworkers, terrible managers.

    I worked at Panera Bread

    Pros

    Customers were always happy to be there and I was lucky enough to have friendly and fun coworkers. Great as a first job.

    Cons

    Panera always keeps their employees there way after schedule, including minors. The managers were always coming and going and were very disorganized. Training was never up to date for new employees and it was unnecessarily stressful.
