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

Pros

The crew is wonderful, hard workers, great pay for management, bennifits are ok, used to offer free food to employees,, will give you the free liberty to do whatever it takes to make the customer happy.

Cons

Management is a joke, hardwork and dedication never pays off, misleading about no late nights...some nights you don't leave till 1130, to much to do and not enough time to do it, keep piling on the work to no avail. Discouraging when your a dedicated employee and they don't reward. Oh and Mindshare sucks!!

Advice to Management

Get your butts out of the office and help!! Oh and if you insist on table service either hire more help and adjust your charts for labor or go back to the old way. There's a reason nobody else runs they're buisness this way, it doesn't work!! And get rid of Mindshare, it's stupid, people will say something negative 10 times to 1 positive comment and then you crucify your staff for bad scores...because your sitting in the office not helping.

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

    Pros

    Great food, even better selection, staff really does treat you with a sense of family and immediate welcoming! Comfortable atmosphere and tables are always clean and ready for you. Soothing and upbeat music make this experience even better. One thing that tops it off is not only the aroma of freshly baked bread, soup, pasta and pastries, is the presentation and taste which is supurb!

    Cons

    Wish it was in walking distance to my house, open the door, reach out my hand and heaven sent!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
