Working at Panera Bread has been a joy for me while in school. Panera was my first job and has taught me many skills and life lessons. I started just before I turned 16 as a dish washer, then over time I have ascended to my current position as a Manager. In my current work as a Manager I over see and insure that our operational tasks are completed in a timely manor with importance on great customer service, and preform many duties to keep the café running smoothly. This can range from baking, to helping with the production of sandwiches and salads, working the cash register, managing the Associates, handling costumer complaints, brewing coffee,preforming many managerial office tasks, all with a focus on great customer service.
