I worked at Panera Bread (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great concept to work for. If you have the chance build your own team from within and avoid being set with a team.

Cons

Jvp's are greedy. All about numbers not about people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Maybe background checks on staff as we'll. It appears panera hires drug uses and then promotes them. No background/ drug checks on those promoted from within.

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

    Pros

    Some stores are very understaffed so its easy to pick up hours.

    Cons

    Only offer part time, the only people allowed to achieve 40 hours or more are managers. You get sent home if you hit 37 hours. A lot of time on your feet standing in one spot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give benefits or raise salaries more often. Hard work is not rewarded enough so it becomes discouraging. More hours or a small raise would keep the motivation.

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

    Pros

    They have really good perks like discounts on meals and free bagels and bread. Met a lot of really nice co-workers. The company has good values and respect the environment.

    Cons

    The pay wasn't justified by the amount of work that is required. They staffed less than usual people when more efficient employees are scheduled in an effort to save on wages. Management wasn't always the best or fair, they usually picked favorites.
