At Panera Bread, we make sure each of our associates and managers feel the same kind of "Panera Warmth" that our guests experience.
Panera Bread is a culture of warmth that provides an environment which allows us to be ourselves, while embracing diverse backgrounds, values, and beliefs. Your talents and our vision combine to provide opportunities that promote your individual development and our continued success.
Attracting the most talented Associates is critical to our continued success. We are looking for Guest Advocates that understand the value of working as part of a team. If you are a Constant Learner who takes pride in your work and enjoys working in a fast-paced (but not fast food) environment, you may be a fit for Panera. We can offer you a great place to work, flexible hours and lots of room to grow. But fear not - while we do want to be a part of your life, we believe in work/life balance. In fact, 'being balanced' is one of our company values.
You will have the opportunity to apply as a Cashier, Sandwich/Salad Maker or Prep Associate but in each position, you will fill the same Job Roles:
Team Member: As a team member, you get and give respect, ask and answer questions, and always give your best to serve the customer and the team. You willingly play your part, whatever that may be, in making the bakery-cafe a warm and welcoming place.
Constant Learner: Panera is always changing. Whether it is the menu, the procedures, or the way we celebrate, we are always striving to be better. As an Associate you are committed to continuous learning and show great flexibility as you apply your knowledge, however, and wherever, it is needed.
Craftsperson: Whether making sandwiches, brewing coffee, running the register or cleaning the floors—whatever you are doing—you do it to the high standard of excellence set by Panera. You take pride in every aspect of your work and perform it with energy and enthusiasm.
Face of Panera: Your warmth, humor and friendliness create the Face of Panera. This provides the connection for the customer to call it “My Panera.”
Customer Advocate: You know what the customer wants and you deliver it—fast, accurate and friendly service. You consistently follow Rule #1: break any rule to keep the customer satisfied. You always hear and sense customer needs, and keep managers and fellow team members informed on an ongoing basis.
The health and well-being of our associates is a high priority at Panera Bread. We offer competitive compensation and benefits to both hourly and salaried associates, based on eligibility and availability. We believe these are key components of our associates' Total Rewards and employment experience.
