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

    Pros

    Discounts on food while you're working, getting a lot of hours, good food, friendly coworkers

    Cons

    Too many hours for part time, inconsistent management, not training employees, always understaffed, way too overpriced, rude customers who do not understand that the company is a fast food joint

    Advice to Management

    Stop stretching yourselves too thin in the high volume cafes that need more employees, especially when they have a drive thru. More employees are needed to accommodate the lunch and dinner rushes than management will allow due to already being "over labor." Also, when your employees are students, you should be respectful of that. Finally, promising promotions and raises for a year and not following through with them is extremely un-motivating.
