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

    Pros

    The discount is awesome. The learning experience is nice. You get to make a bond with your coworkers. You get to learn how to be a barista.

    Cons

    If you have to close and you are the dishwasher. It's very hard and rough. Some people don't help even though it's suppose to be a team. It was very hard for me to stay because it literally wore my body out. Managers do pick favorites.

    Pros

    I loved the people I worked with; lots of opportunities for promotions; flexible hours; very clean environment; amazing food that doesn't really get old after eating it too much

    Cons

    Management needs to do more managing and get their stuff figured out; upper management - not everyone is on the same page; low pay for the amount of work that is done; work drama

    Advice to Management

    Get everyone on the same page concerning new policies.
