Inapropriate and immature work environment
Dining Room Attendant (Former Employee) – Knoxville, TN – January 4, 2016
The Panera I had worked at was staffed mainly by high schoolers, who didn't understand how a work environment was different to that of school. However, along with the hourly staff, the managers had a tendency to act childish and crude. There were crude and rude joke thrown around at any second, the managers would yell at their friends or significant others on the phone during work hours rather than taking care of their responsibilities, there was little sense of urgency for the costumer or organization. Overall, it was an unpleasant and immature place, thus my leaving.
Despite not having the best sort of coworkers, I did learn a great deal in keeping myself organized and taking the lead to make sure things got done properly. Time management and efficiency were key components in making sure my area was closed properly and in a timely fashion. Those skills would later bleed through into my time working as a line associate, where time management, initiative, and a calm head came first and foremost. Despite having to leave Panera due to unsavory coworkers and managers, I did leave with many new skills and knowledge.
