Everything was on computer.
I was a trainer myself and while they have a very extensive training program set in place, many times I was asked to just fill out an associate review without actually seeing them perform the listed tasks. Basically management at the time was scrambling to put in all the employee position reviews for every employee that needed one and as a trainer I had to write them all out.
The best part about job training is guess is that it's paid. The worst part is they rely on other associate workers to do the management training job which is like baby trying to teach an infant which in this case both are barely know how to run the job sufficiently.
Pretty thorough training when done correctly. Training quality can vary from store to store. The best way to tell of training quality right away is if everyone knows who the training specialist is and how much they use their training plans. The more, the better
superb. employee modules quick and super fast
There are tons of opportunities at Panera to further your on the job knowledge
Not training as well as they used to, because they fired all the trainers who could train well, and are using people who have worked a position for less that a week to train new people.
For managers there is 6-7 weeks of paid training. Depends who you will be trained with. Paid food and a lot of new information.
Provided ServSafe classes and Baguette University courses. Very long process but worth it
Panera job training is one of the best programs out there in the industry.
