    I have been working at Panera Bread full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun work environment and good pay. Nice environment. Good food. Lots of fun regulars who you get to meet on a personal level.

    Cons

    Frustrating customers and associates. Neither one knows what they really want. Staffing can be really tight which leads to high frustration levels making it difficult to really give warm service. Not easy to come to this concept after full service restaurant experience.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your associates to the fullest because they can get a minimum paying job elsewhere. Give them other reasons to stay.


  2. "Good Company, Better than average pay"
