Pros: pepsi products
Cons: inconsistent hours, ignored requests, poor scheduling, poor management
I've never missed a shift and I always put in the effort to making Panera a better environment. After a year of stifled training, I finally became a manager and one that the employees respect because of my experience and leadership style. However our GM lacks that leadership and is overcritical and never supportive. I have excelled at everything Panera throws at me and there is never any confidence or support given to reciprocate. I also have NO limitations on my availability so my schedule is scattered and never consistent. In return, I can't even get days off when I request them months in advance and the schedule isn't released until 3 days before the week starts. As one of the more proactive employees at our store, I would expect some respect and kindness but get none. I have a greater potential that Panera refuses to accept and I have been wasting my time and effort on Panera Bread.
