    Pros

    Managment is very communicative, and positive. The team is very helpful towards new employees, and cheerfull. The employees always seem to be well informed about their foods. There are staff meetings called 'Bread Bashes' where staff will meet and discuss and taste new items about to be sold. You can be trained in many stations. Atmosphere is chill but still bright friendly and upbeat!
    Oh and plenty of free food and drinks.

    Cons

    Long Training process with orientation being at another possibly inconvenient Panera Bread bakery.
    Early as 5am shifts if you are opening. No tips.

    Advice to Management

    It is highly inconvenient to have to drive all the way to another Panera bakery to attend an orientation, when you have applied and work at another location. Maybe change that. For I was not aware of this before I was hired, and had to struggle to get to the other location.

    Pros

    No late night working, or not too bad of customers. People who work with are pretty nice company to have around.

    Cons

    Too much work and too much expectations, but they never invest to provide tools or labor to achieve them. Too stressful and salary managers work more than 50 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Spend some labor hours in order to provide good service, and to keep up with all the menu offerings and quality assurance. Too stressful and too many long hours. No personal life for employees.
