I have been working at Panera Bread part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

You get to meet some very nice people and maybe even hear a story from a customer.

Cons

Favoritism was the it is and many good employees quit because of it.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees, they might know more than you think.

    I worked at Panera Bread part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - OK working environment
    - nice employees for the most part

    Cons

    - Pay: Raises and promotion seems based on who sucks up to managers the most and not based on how hard one works
    - Shady managers: I have known multiple managers who were busted for stealing money from employees and the business

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

    Pros

    Extremely flexible hours and workdays for part time employees, did not over-schedule high school part time employees to enable participation in extracurricular activities

    Cons

    Part time employees must regularly work closing shifts, can get stuck in one particular job area (such as dishwashing) - pretty young high school girls were the ones most likely to be working the most desirable jobs such as cashiering and working on the line

    Advice to Management

    Don't focus so much on making money and focus more on actually having safe, non-expired food available. Using food that is past its day-dotted expiration date is simply unacceptable, but I would get in trouble for throwing this food away instead of feeding it to people.
