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

    Pros

    The pro's are, you usually have great customers. Return customers honestly care how your doing, and try their hardest to help you out. I loved the atmosphere at Panera, it's great. The music is soothing, and it has a homey feeling to it. I enjoy the fast paced environment, there is never a dull moment.

    Cons

    The downsides can be it gets really busy! It can be hectic especially on the weekends. Another con, is that when you close, it is typically late when you get home. I usually get home at 11:15, and I leave work around 11 pm. The work can be tough, and the only time you will sit, or be slow, is when you have your break. Trust me, if you hate moving, or running around, don't apply.

    Advice to Management

    Try and get first pay check issues straightened out.

  2. A lot of wonderful people and a fun place to work
