    I have been working at Panera Bread part-time

    Pros

    Beneficial in that it helped me to be myself and give great customer service to be positive .

    Cons

    Work hours not consistent and I ended up working three part time jobs as a single parent just to pay my bills. Gm put a lot of work on trainers and assistant managers that they should do themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Please give partime employees more consistant hours that are single parents we depend on our small income to survive on and often work another job just to make ends meet. Also please help with admin tasks and don't over work your assistant managers so much.

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

    Pros

    #Product discounts
    #Pleasant Environment
    #Fun coworkers
    #Good starting pay ($8.12)
    #Great customer service Orientation
    #Minors get breaks

    Cons

    #Long hours with no breaks (adults)
    #Working hours are not fixed. They will keep you later if necessary.
    #Bad management (schedules,disorganized)
    #If you need to have a shift covered, they require you to find replacement
    #managers have smoke breaks

    Advice to Management

    Manage your schedules accordingly so that there aren't gaps in between schedules. Give your working adults breaks. Florida law doesn't require you to give us breaks. It clearly states that it is up to the company. If as a company your first priority is pleasing your customers, apply that to your employees as well. If you can't retain us then there is a serious problem with the company. I have worked 6-4 many days without breaks. Also as an adult, I am scheduled a certain time. If I am expected to be at work at a certain time then I am expected to be out at a certain time. My manager claims that schedules are just guidelines. If you need me to stay, please ask. Don't retain me.
