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

    Pros

    If you love customer interaction then Panera is the company for you. We pride ourselves on always putting our customer's needs' first.

    Cons

    Hours can be very inconsistent, lack of any structured hands on training and communication overall between management and hourly employees.

    Advice to Management

    Cafe management should embody the mission of Panera, employees should not feel like they do not matter nor that they could be spoken to in any way. Communication is hands down the biggest characteristic that management struggles with.
