Get Ready to Rise.
Whatever your goals when you arrive at Panera,
hard work and teamwork can get you there

and beyond.
I started as a part-time associate and recently became the GM. This cafe has some amazing people and being yourself isn't hard. Everyone has come to the point where we see each other as family rather than just co-workers.
Jose M., General Manager
I started out as a line associate making sandwiches and now I am an Assistant Manager specializing in training and scheduling. Throughout my entire career at Panera I have been surrounded by strong and fearless women in leadership roles. These women have constantly encouraged me to learn new things and keep moving up with Panera.
Emily P., Assistant Manager
As a cashier, I enjoy assisting any customers. Some have been coming here for years, and are like family to me. I always feel satisfied at the end of my shift knowing I put a smile on someone's face or made their day better. 
Clarita, Cashier
