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

Pros

I loved my crew. Worked with good hard working employees.

Cons

Mangement was beyond awful. Worst management I've seen! Pay is too low! Benefits are a joke!

Advice to Management

Benefits are so bad that its not worth having. Take a tip from Starbucks! More mangement training! GMs need leader training. The turn over rate is so bad, you would think the company would find out why!

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

    Pros

    Discounted food, free drinks, we treat customers great no matter what.

    Cons

    Schedules constantly changing, poor management, keep people at part-time even if promised full time, on your feet constantly, dissatisfied managers take everything out on you and they are constantly changing staff, it is a revolving door.

    Advice to Management

    Get better managers that like their job and don't complain.

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

    Pros

    Great people and atmosphere. I was lucky and had nice managers who were flexible with my work schedule. You got half price for meals.

    Cons

    The managers don't always give reviews or raises when they are supposed to. As a result, many of the employees, especially high school kids are very disgruntled and don't always work well/are lazy. Employees and sometimes managers did not have very high standards for food quality or customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees raises/reviews consistently. Screen managers better in terms of professionalism, friendliness, and competency.
