I worked at Panera Bread part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I can not recall any pros.

Cons

I was an older worker who was discriminated against.

Advice to Management

I wasn't allowed to learn new things and the other workers were allowed to make fun of me. I am a college graduate who just needed a part time job. I wanted to go full time and was not allowed to. Only the younger people got the chances at promotions such as assistant manager. A lot of companies are learning that the older worker has a better work ethic and has a lot to offer any company. Panera does not take advantage of this.

    I worked at Panera Bread part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The atmosphere is fantastic. It really makes you feel like you are in a good place. Employees are treated very well overall. Panera hires from a great pool of people. Flexible hours. Not to mention the great food! Also most of the managers I have interacted with are very laid back and friendly

    Cons

    Decent pay, could have been a little higher. Wasn't a fan of not being able to take extra food after closing for the day (not sure if this is still restricted)
