I worked at Panera Bread full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

For a restaurant, the food is actually pretty healthy. I took advantage of the discount and the rejected orders! The other employees were fun and the work environment was enjoyable. It was fast-paced because we did get very busy, especially during lunch, but I enjoyed the excitement.

Cons

They should take advantage of technology more. For instance, the schedule was only posted in the restaurant so I had to physically go there or call and bother someone to tell me my schedule. It was also usually posted last-minute, the day before it was in effect.

Advice to Management

Managers didn't always agree on procedures. There should be a manual that determines "the right way" to eliminate confusion.

    I worked at Panera Bread full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great bonus program for top performers. It makes all of the extra effort put forth worth it. You feel truly rewarded. Message of the company is that they only want people that will show true passion for the work they do, and towards the customers they serve.

    Cons

    Sometime administrative demands are hard to complete because of lack of time to be able to commit to it.
