Started off great, but then when you become really good at what you do, they take advantage of you for their benefits.

    Pros

    panera typicallly has wonderful regulars who genuinely care about how you are doing

    Cons

    poor advancement. they expect perfection for minimum wage. if you do get a raise its generally after you've worked for the company for years and its usually ten cents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    I loved working at Panera when I first started. The people were good, the food was great, and the customers were, on the average, much less annoying than what they could have been.

    Cons

    This company, for a few years now, has put a huge restriction on raises for its Cafe's, meaning that what you get paid is what you get paid, and once you have been accredited to all the modules you can be, you get a dollar raise total, and the rest depends on your yearly share between you and all of your coworkers out of the 4-6 dollars of raise each cafe gets. They very much like to stick you to where you are, and to squeeze out what they can out of you before you realize what's going on and move on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees.
