Panera was my first job and while there were things I didn't care for, working here gave me a nice feel for what and what not to expect at a job. My biggest problem came from a lack of consistency as I spent 4 out of four out of my seven months employed training at various stations due to managers shuffling me around, most likely because I was part-time in high school. While I don't particularly care for the job and would not recommend it to anyone at this point, I do believe it is a good starting point as it keeps you alert and prepares you well for your next job, wherever it may be.
