Featured Review

Former Employee - Sales Associate/Cashier

I worked at Kohl's part-time

Pros

Great employees, managers, etc. Everyone was friendly and patient, it’s an easy job to learn

Cons

If you’re not typically active this probably isn’t the best job for you. It takes a lot of energy and time, but it is still a very good place to work.

Current Employee - Assistant General Manager

I have been working at Panera Bread full-time

Pros

They’re a great company to work for

Cons

Extremely hands on not like a usual restaurant manager
