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

Pros

It is a good company. They donate bread to the needy, and they have great values.

Cons

As with most food service, the general managers, if not properly looked at by the regional manager, can be not so great to work for.

At this particular location, that is no longer an issue.

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

    Pros

    free bagels
    breaks
    discounts on food during the shift and free drinks all the time

    Cons

    less hours then promised-promised full time only given 15 hours a week
    unfriendly coworkers
    long test modules that didnt really help with training

    Advice to Management

    when promising hours it would be good to make that committment. i spent more time doing the test modules then actually working

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

    Pros

    Learn how a well oiled machine of an operation works - especially during peak mealtimes.

    Cons

    You are a disposable stooge. Some employees that have worked for over 9 years still are making less than $9 an hour. Good for college students looking for a little extra income with flexible hours. The management leans pretty heavily from the top down and creates unnecessary stress.

    Advice to Management

    The "everyday oasis" needs to start with you! Check your stress at the door before you enter.
