Fast-Paced, Low Pay, (Hourly Retail/Fast Food)
Hourly Associate (Former Employee) – North Port, FL – October 29, 2016
Working for Panera Bread is about what you would expect from a "Fast-Food" environment. It, however, is miles ahead of McDonalds, Burger King--etc. The staff are usually* friendly, management is usually* quite good, the food is good, the pay is minimum wage (or slightly higher), they hire minors >=16, Fairly good Part-Time Hours, a tendency to work Full-Timers over 41 hours, and in a clean environment.
Since I was in High-School at the time, I personally only worked the weekends--or late nights, and I did not get many hours.
A good High-Schooler job, or just graduated job--or college (part time) addition.
65% Discount on a daily meal, access to a list of benefits (from Phone service discounts to Insurance), and access to special "Staff Money" (Basically a 50% discount anytime, at any store.)
Low pay, Hard (for minors) to advance, Rare Raises (even for full-timers), Tedious management habits.
