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

    Pros

    There are none that I can honestly think of.
    - The Store manager was a very caring individual and tried to make the environment the best she could

    Cons

    Many cons
    - Lack of training but, high expectations
    - Very low pay for the amount of labor that you provide
    - Very hectic Rushes and rude customers
    - Management was full of young shift managers that we very childish

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the Shift managers that are on the phone all the time and yell at the associates to get of the phone. Get rid of all the couples making out in the back of the house. Get rid of the managers that cannot separate drama from the work place. This store felt like high school. Everyone was always talking behind peoples back.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work at panera is that you don't have to work late into the night and you get to take fresh bread home pretty often.

    Cons

    The challenges were that there were so many people working there that you have to fight tonbenon the schedule. Its good for a small high school gig but when your trying to pay real bills its extremely unrealistic.
