I have been working at Panera Bread part-time (more than an year)

Pros

There are a lot of nice workers here. You get 50% off on your break and they are pretty flexible with availabilities.

Cons

Lately they are understaffed. The managers can be rude .

    Pros

    It is a good company. They donate bread to the needy, and they have great values.

    Cons

    As with most food service, the general managers, if not properly looked at by the regional manager, can be not so great to work for.

    At this particular location, that is no longer an issue.

    Becoming an employee sees as much as a sales pitch as being a customer

    I worked at Panera Bread part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Learn how a well oiled machine of an operation works - especially during peak mealtimes.

    Cons

    You are a disposable stooge. Some employees that have worked for over 9 years still are making less than $9 an hour. Good for college students looking for a little extra income with flexible hours. The management leans pretty heavily from the top down and creates unnecessary stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The "everyday oasis" needs to start with you! Check your stress at the door before you enter.
