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

Pros

It's fun.
If you're a good/hard worker, there are many opportunities to move up.

Cons

The pay is WAY too low for all of the hard work I and my co-workers do.
"Full-time" is 25 or less hours a week at my store. I'm starting school in the fall, and would like to be working 40 hours a week to save up. I've mentioned this numerous times to the manager in charge of schedules, and I'm still only scheduled around 25 hours a week.

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

    Pros

    Good hours
    Pay is alright if you don't have bills to pay

    Cons

    You won't get many hours
    Food isn't fresh at all, only the bread, some veggies, dressings and cheese are fresh.

    Advice to Management

    Seems like you pay a lot of attention to the freshness of the bread but let all other aspects of the food go down the tube. Pay more attention to making everything fresh and it would taste better. Also having a microwave in the lobby sends a bad message to customers.

    Great Work life balance and benefits.

    Corporate office micromanages stores. Assistant Managers are treated well. Managers were stressed and often replaced.
