Hi Good Afternoon, I was trying to apply to a location in Toronto Ontario but I keep being redirected to your American site which blocks me because I have a Postal Code which is six digits not five. Would appreciate the help. Have a nice day. Thanks, Sincerely, Shawna Harrison firstname.lastname@example.org
My GM in Arkansas on Front Street, Shannon Miller was the best boss to work for at Panera Bread!! In relocating I chose one Panera here in Charlotte, NC. Dan the former GM was recommended and was truly fantastic boss too! However, Dan left for a new Panera opportunity. 🙂 The new GM, Amanda, and 3 store managers were also wonderful. To me, the leaders are what set both the stage and the standard for the work environment! Creating a team that works well, flows together serving their customers and one another while keeping the work environment enjoyable is a challenge. There’s always a recipe for success in any restaurant. Quality product that’s consistent, friendliness, a willingness to both foresee and serve others needs, and cleanliness are just a few. The best bosses are servant managers in my book, not bossy ones that micro manage employees and don’t respect other’s boundaries. They act territorial instead with no thought or consideration for others. Such became the case with a returning manager. The other employees with one exception of one with constant negativity we’re wonderful and it was enjoyable to go. As a former restaurant manager over the years there comes a realization that no matter how long a few people are in your business, if their creating the wrong atmosphere for others it’s better to correct or cut them loose, (no matter there time or talent) than lose people who just want to be kind, work hard, add to your business, and enjoy being there on a day to day basis. Such was the case for me at the this particular Panera. In fairness an illness and family stress at the moment lessened my willingness to tolerate this type of sudden work environment. I don’t leave a job. But I wanted to make a point that no job is worth that kind of managing. And it just takes one. Panera is a great place to work otherwise except for health insurance. I’d recommend working there to anyone. It’s a great place for your first job, college kids who need to work, any age. There’s flexibility too. However unless they change their health options are not good and at some Panera’s ask about periodic frequency of raises and get it in writing in advance. #reviewonpanerabreadfromone #foodservices # #jobsearch #aboutmyjob
Hello, I'm just curious as to what your company is looking for. I have previous management experience in running a bakery/cafe/deli also known as Le' Boulanger throughout the Silicon Valley. I was an Assistant Manager for over a year working for them, until I had to move. They located me 3 times. I know the environment is extremely fast paced, the customers needs, and I also know how challenging it can be to maintain such a business. Good work ethics are a must for me along with structure, multitasking, excellent communication skills, stability, speed and productivity. Always keep your guests coming back for more. Every manager has a different type of managing style, so adapting comfortably is key in hiring every associate or manager. (shift supervisor, etc.) The reason for this question is because Panera keeps sending me emails on a daily basis.
What's your take on the new $9/month deal on coffee from Panera?
The worst mistake I madewas working there
