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

Pros

Make sure everyone is well trained which builds some moral and comradery (as much as you can get working entry level in food industry)

Of course, discounted food is a good perk and Panera has great food.

The management I worked for was nice and tolerant

Customers were generally very nice and the store i worked at was busy so it stayed moving

Cons

They were nit picky about clocking in and out for half hour at lunch, food discount is good not great...
Pay isnt great, but I wasnt expecting it to be
overall not many complaints though

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    I loved working at Panera when I first started. The people were good, the food was great, and the customers were, on the average, much less annoying than what they could have been.

    Cons

    This company, for a few years now, has put a huge restriction on raises for its Cafe's, meaning that what you get paid is what you get paid, and once you have been accredited to all the modules you can be, you get a dollar raise total, and the rest depends on your yearly share between you and all of your coworkers out of the 4-6 dollars of raise each cafe gets. They very much like to stick you to where you are, and to squeeze out what they can out of you before you realize what's going on and move on.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees.
