Dangerous health and toxic managers
Associate (Current Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – October 22, 2015
Worked at Panera for two years. Initially, I loved it. Over time, managers became toxic and mean and the entire management team is now mean/toxic/unfair to employees.
My store was a platinum audit store but before I left there was black mold in the green tea/lemonade (most bought drink), which is deadly, and my managers brushed it off and bleached it. I'm sure it's still growing.
Underneath the espresso station there was rotten old milk that they covered up with tiles to get rid of the foul smell that came out from underneath. Nests of bugs inhereted this area, one week fleas, fruit flies, flies, then beetles, and then giant spiders.
Not saying all is bad, I used to love it there, met my partner there, and it was like a family for a while - until management became toxic.
