This is overall a nice place to work.

Associate Trainer (Current Employee)
Lancaster, PA (US)

I have been working at Panera Bread full-time for more than a year

ProsI felt that my training was very thorough.
The managers do their best to accommodate your availability and stuff that comes up short notice.
 If you want, there is definitely a possibility to move up in the company if you're good at what you do.

ConsCan be very stressful during busy times.
Some of the managers are young and inexperienced.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
