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

Pros

Baking position is almost entirely night shift. Generally give 40 hours a week. They offer health benefits. Work is generally monotonous enough in complexity.

Cons

You work in a two man crew, and catering orders come in last second that are usually ill supplied for.

    Pros

    Great coworkers and 50% off food up to $10.00. Can also be trained to work in different areas of the store.

    Cons

    Managers always tell you we want to promote you or a raise is coming but it never happens.
    Pay is so low (min wage) to start for the amount of very hard work always expected to do. We are so very busy then we get pushed to work harder and faster...
    Corporate is always coming in at least 3 times a week nit picking everything saying it is not good enough.. Our store is so clean you could eat off the floor.. They will want it more clean..
    Managers pocket money by running fewer people on the floor making employees work harder during busy shifts.. Then after being exhausted after a long shift you don't go home you have more cleaning duties!!!
    I have worked for Panera for four years and made it to a whopping $9.00 hr.

    Advice to Management

    It isn't going to happen unless you have no life and you eat, sleep, breath, drink and live Panera! I am not exaggerating. You are on call 24/ 7 I have seen it...
