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

    Pros

    Managers and owners very approachable. Customer service very high priority. Enjoy going to work every day, great environment to work. Great co-workers. Favorite place to eat as a customer. Hard workers acknowledged. Advancement possible from within company.

    Cons

    FT hours not always available. Some trainers not qualified. Young managers, not in sync, some immaturity and favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Have lunch with an associate when you stop in for visits. Secure relationships with the average employee to build trust and you'll be rewarded with more happy and loyal employees. :)

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

    Pros

    The discount is really nice, and the employees are so kind.

    Cons

    All the managers tell you different things so you never know if you're doing something right. One of the managers never lets you go when you're supposed to be off for unecesarry reasons. Everything is so unorganized. Also, the same manager that never lets me off is extremely rude and immature for an adult. I feel so uncomfortable like im always doing something wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Train better! Have a better attitude and act like you want to be working at panera. Just because you're a manager, does not give you the right to be extremely hateful and rude for no reason; respect your employees.
