I worked at Panera Bread

Pros

Good Food, decent money. Not a bad place to work.

Cons

District Manager was horrible when I worked there, although I do believe he has been replaced by the owners. The hours are bad.

    I worked at Panera Bread

    Pros

    You get a fifty percnt discount on the food which is pretty nice. Other than that not many up sides.

    Cons

    There is no room or advancement, they never offer raises, they take advantage of their good employees by constantly asking them to work extra hours, but if you're sick and call out they give you a hard time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not too great

    I have been working at Panera Bread

    Pros

    The people at the Panera I work at are great, and the food is great. Scheduling is also quite flexible.

    Cons

    The pay is not the greatest, but it'll do for me right now. Sometimes depending on who's managing, thing can either run very smoothly or be chaotic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the management at the store I work at are pretty good. There's a good balance of different kinds of people.
