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

Pros

Company culture is fantastic, and your co-workers are great.

Cons

The management is never in sync with one another and you end up being micro-managed by 4 people at a time.

Advice to Management

Communicate with each other more to avoid employee burnout.

    I have been working at Panera Bread full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a friendly environment. Company values are always talked about.

    Cons

    Insurance benefits are expensive and upper management should get paid a little more for the hours they put in.

    Advice to Management

    If the insurance benefits were better, this would be the icing on the cake.

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

    Pros

    The best reasons to work at panera is that you don't have to work late into the night and you get to take fresh bread home pretty often.

    Cons

    The challenges were that there were so many people working there that you have to fight tonbenon the schedule. Its good for a small high school gig but when your trying to pay real bills its extremely unrealistic.
