    I have been working at Panera Bread full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I like the customers and most fo the people I work with

    Cons

    It's hard to move up in the company. Your lucky if you get a $.25 raise max at your review time (which they never show you so you don't know what they really write)

    Advice to Management

    your experience should count for something, not how cute you are (at least that's how it is at my store)

    I have been working at Panera Bread full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are lots of great people who work here, and are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, they cap hourly workers at 10/hr, hate giving raises to get you near that, won't give you a stable schedule, always cut labor to the bone, and have no part time benefits plus they require you reach 35/hr a week for a whole year average to get full time benefits. If you don't reach full time benefits you do NOT earn your vacation hours, they're gone, you do not have access to their poor quality health insurance, and that's all there is on the benefits table. Out of around 40 employees, only 8 were scheduled for enough hours to meet their benefits requirements. Terrible.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more, and treat them better. Stop cutting labor so much that the job isn't enjoyable to go to. Maybe think about getting a benefits system that makes sense, and allowing more people to reach them.
