    I worked at Panera Bread part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Always something to do, can move up pretty quickly, allowed to do anything within reason to satisfy a customer

    Cons

    work-life balance (most management doesn't care if you have other responsibilities/are sick), even if you do move up to higher positions don't expect your pay to reflect the amount of work you put in, must pay for meals, you never know what you're getting into: some stores are ok but others are terrible

    Pros

    -Family environment.
    -Many training opportunities.
    -Room for growth with in the company.
    -Fun environment!
    -Ability to learn how work every aspect of the job from cashier to prep in a very short time.
    -Very flexible with hours.
    -Always trying to improve the customer experience!
    -AMAZING food discounts!

    Cons

    -Pay is some what low, but management does what the are allowed to do for raises
    -My location is VERY busy, so if you want an "easy/relaxed job" look at another location. We are fast pace, high volume fast moving high energy store and the associates at this cafe' see each other more than they see their own family some times and especially during season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work! There will always be negativity in the world around us but we can all grow as a group and help strengthen the cafe' as a whole.
