    Pros

    -65% off food when working, 50% off food when just stopping in (this is pretty sweet if you ask me)
    -Easy to move up to become a trainer, shift supervisor, manager if you are dedicated
    -Usually the people who work there are pretty cool
    -My managers are pretty cool, some can be bad from what I've heard

    Cons

    -A little difficult to balance personal life and work
    -Customers tend to think you're stupid
    -We run out of product sometimes, and the customers do not take well to this
    -Closing can sometimes be difficult
    -Crazy busy in the mornings

    Advice to Management

    We all have lives outside of Panera. We are human beings. It is easy to mess up every once in a while. Also, our policies at Panera are bound to make us waste a lot of money (brewing coffee every hour) so don't complain if we follow policy and actually make coffee every hour but tell us we need to be making coffee every hour when we don't: we know it's wasteful. It's company policy so you decide whether or not to follow it.
