I worked at Panera Bread part-time (less than a 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.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of your good employees!

    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.

    I have been working at Panera Bread

    Pros

    everybody knows what to do and how... no surprises no managers pushing... everything just right... I like that in a difference of other companies that they are just looking on something wrong to point on.

    Cons

    Pay rate could be better, there is no bonuses or extra motivation, what you see is what you get... no more

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get more involved on the daily performance of every department, sometimes with the time team members can get relax on some steps and mess the work of others.
