Relaxing and enjoyable night for a date, family night out and a meeting after work.

Typical day at Panera Bread is simple. You have to make sure everything is stocked. Creating satisfying meals for regular customers or new people. I learned about all kinds of bread that I had no clue existed; from tomato basil, cibatta, asiago demi and foccacia. This is not a white and wheat bread world anymore. The managers at Panera are helpful and understanding. Same with my co workers, my first close I had learned so much, and noone heistated to help me if I had became confused. Hardest thing depends on where you're working and what day you're working. Most people have a hard time when we have rush hour yet I like it. I enjoy the rush and being quick on my feet. I also enjoy seeing the customer enjoy their meal where the bowl is empty.
Kentlands is fun to work at. Beltsville is fun to work at. Dobbin square is a challenge but if your hard working and dedicated you might get far. the job itself isn't hard but its the customers. some are nice some are racist to be honest, but you can just ignore those few select people.

I love working at Panera. The hospitality and warm welcoming is not only to their customers, but their EMPLOYEES as well!.. Only reason why i'm trying to find another job is because my hourly wage isn't enough for my household :(
awesome people, you help the less fortunate, and food discounts !

A typical day at Panera was a busy one where there was one rush after another. I really enjoyed the busy and fast paced rushes during breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I constantly enjoyed being occupied where time flew by and moving around. As for me, standing around is not part of my work ethic and being on the line there was always something to do. I acquired much professional patience and how to work well under pressure which are only a few of many skills acquired there. In all honesty management is rough there but now a days it seems hard to find good management. The hardest part of my job was the stress, coming in to find responsibilities incomplete and slack to pick up after. The most enjoyable part of my job was the laughs shared with a good crew in the midst of chaos.

Working here is easy. Sometime the manager can be unprofessional. The pay is decent for starters. It is a fun place to work at and it is enjoyable if you make it. it can be stressful with high volume of customers but overall its enjoyable.

A typical day required taking a lot of orders and packing up items for donation. I learned that some customers may be rude but customers are always right. Management was sort of uptight. The workplace culture was very fast paced and talkative. The hardest part was getting the managers to change an order when a customer changed their mind. The most enjoyable part was some of the workers.

Its insane and its like a mad house. Managers don't even know what they're doing, New working hour schedule is not conducive to family life.You never get recognized by managers for going out of your way. There is no communication, you jump on your register and do your work.
percentage off meals
sometimes no breaks, they just want a person there, they don['t care who it is
