I have been working at Panera Bread part-time (More than a year)
This is a great part-time job especially for students. The wage is higher than most average restaurant or food industry jobs. There is also many opportunities for raises as you train in different areas of production. The discount is also great and there are also opportunities to rise within the company more often than other food service providers.
The scheduling is behind the times and needs to be updated. Schedules generally do not come out more than a few days in advance and are paper copy or emailed. Sometimes POF forms are not filled out as they should be therefore limiting raises or standing within the company.
Advice to Management
Remember to keep up to date with POFs and training plans. Please try to update the system of scheduling as to give employees more time to plan out their weeks. Most of us have school and other jobs along with possibly families that need a set schedule.
