    I have been working at Panera Bread part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The food, discount lol, the people, the ambiance and the pay!

    Cons

    The only thing I don't like is when you're working dining room, you can't wear gloves which sucks because you're literally picking up silverware and bowls covered in the public's germs and left of food. it's disgusting

    Advice to Management

    Let us wear gloves in the dining room! Please and thanks 😁

    I have been working at Panera Bread (More than a year)

    Pros

    pay above minimum wage, great coworker environment, free drinks, good food discount, pay biweekly

    Cons

    I worked there for two years and never got a raise or promotion. I was asked to train new people without getting promoted to trainer. I am not bragging when I say I was one of their best dinning room and dish workers, everyone else was subpar. I worked very hard. I am ok at cash but I can train in all three positions. I am leaving due to lack of promotion and raise. My previous Panera was a corporate store and I would have had a raise by now but I had to move and Franchises have a smaller budget.

    Advice to Management

    Give raises and promotions to those who have earned it.

    I have been working at Panera Bread part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing discount on food
    So healthy and fresh
    Great core values
    Chill uniforms
    Great co-workers (kinda specific but lol)
    Very easy to get the hang of
    I love the community you feel because of the events we have together like Bread Bashes and Holdiay Parties

    Cons

    They do not give you raises at all unless you ask I guess
    There's very little monetary appreciation for your work tbh
    The management can be a little overbearing if you work on line or dish
    Very very fast paced on weekends

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your workers more, have quarterly check-ins to tell them how they're doing and offer higher pay!
