Pros

You learn very quickly whether you have what it takes in the restaurant business

Cons

Biggest challenge is realizing upper management will always focus on what you're doing wrong instead of what you're doing right. It can turn your energy negative.

    Pros

    Made some good friends with my fellow employees

    Cons

    The pay is terrible, management is lazy and will ask you to do more things if you work hard. If your lucky you will get a 15 cent raise

    Advice to Management

    Corporate should actually spend some time in the stores. They always come up with new ideas that aren't feasible for employees to execute.

    Pros

    Panera Bread was a great place to make new connections and also the food was good, so I never got tired of eating the food

    Cons

    The company allows pretty free reign to their district managers. Which is ok if you have a great district manager, unfortunately they are severely lacking in those

    Advice to Management

    Keep better track of how your dms' treat the gms. Panera Bread lately seems to have become a lot more bottom line driven than customer service driven. Why should anyone come to P Bread when they can get their lunch in about the same time in full service and get better service.
