    If you are a student, they will be very flexible with your schedule. Weekly hours are not consistent. One week you might have 39 hours, the next week you might have 25. Very inconsistent.

    They're pretty fair with the hours but will be petty and either cut them or give you ridiculous hours when you piss them off. The general manager Lyndsey does that .

    You can tell them your availability and they are forced to work around it. If you are receiving too many hours, you can ask for a reduction. There is a "call out book" for days you would like to request time off. Schedules run Wed-Tuesday with the new one recently being posted the Tuesday before a new one starts, so yes less than 24 hour heads up sometimes.

    They're really flexible and it's easy to find someone to cover, but if you're gone too long they may forget to put you on schedule

    Great job at meeting your needs with scheduling.

    They were flexible with my schedule and listened to my preferences. They accommodated me in the fact that I was only available to work during the summer.

    The managers usually listened when I said I preferred certain hours. They worked with me and my summer schedule and understood I would only be working for about 3 months.

    Being part time, they were receptive to days off and changes in schedule.

    Even though it has taken too long for them to acknowledge my availability, they do work around my class schedule.

    I'm not sure if all Panera Stores are the same, however you had to ask for a book and write in the days you needed off. Downside; you had to get the book before everyone else asked for time off, also managers were terrible about checking employees availability and requested days off.
