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

    Pros

    I lost nearly 100lb's because I got so sick of food when I worked for them.

    Cons

    The management only cares about food costs, Labor costs and there bonuses. My hours were cut down to 8 a week when they hired entirely too many people and the labor cost was through the roof. I lost health benefits and was ultimately forced to find another job.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your associates.
