Panera Bread History

Panera Bread began in 1993 when Au Bon Pain purchased the St. Louis Bread Company.  In 1999, Au Bon Pain sold it’s other restaurants and renamed itself to Panera Bread Company, realizing the huge potential of the brand.

In 2007, the chain purchased 70 stores from Paradise Bakery & Cafe, a Phoenix, AZ based company.

In 2008, Panera expanded operations into Canada.

Panera currently has over 1500 locations in 41 US states and Canada.  The Panera Bread corporate office is still located in St. Louis, Missouri.    The company’s locations in St Louis still operate under the name St. Louis Bread Company.

I feel all the Panera bread employees should walk out all on the same day, so the managment and higher can feel like how us employees feel with the lack of respect and lack of pay. The managment including district managers are just rude, heartless, and have their employees runing around as if our heads want to spin off. I cant write a whole book of facts in this little comment box, but im not. Im sure the corporate dont give to loads of soup and pastries about these comments and that some of them are employees wrighting in these comment boxes. But the way you train your managnent to manage the stores and employees just suck. You all lack. Maybe we all should walk out one day and let managment work hard on serving customers with out the help of the associates. And someone to try and drill srgnt them around. I mean come on its panera we work for. Not the war. Its dispicable. Tighten up panera and respect the workers that make you money so you can drive in your flashy cars and high priced attire and fancu shoes,, etc. Cause without your little paner-aliens working hard woth smiles,, you all wont have nothing. With all do respect. Thankyou even if you have read this. And your audits .. really!!! You got the managment looking like fools running around treating the employees even rude, for their .”their BONUS” when the ones working hard are the employees. God not even a fifty dollar bonus for our paychecks. I never worked for a company that makes me want to vomit gor the acts of the managment.

I am interested in finding out why Panera Bread would discharge an eleven year employee for providing good customer service? With over 45 years of retail / customer service, a first time non- SOP infraction has never resulted in an employee termination, and my experience has been with two of the world’s largest retailers! I would expect at least that you will cut out your commercials that you’ve been using, as there should be some truth in advertising,and it seems that you are not as employee centric as you would have people believe.Then again with the above notes, maybe that was an advertising myth……


Jules June 22, 2015 at 4:44 pm

I’m just going to list my complaints:
-My local Panera in West Roxbury has employees that tend to look at each other like “well I’m not helping them” as a line forms and they stand around talking. Then when helped, they give the impression that you’re putting them out.
-while standing in line, seeing flies on all the pastries and bread makes my stomach turn since I used to purchase those pastries and bread. You’d think if they spent so much time daily making these, they’d cover the product to preserve freshness and keep the flies off.
-While I understand changing a few seasonal items, the only thing I order was the panini with mozzarella, sundried tomato and basil. I was told you no longer carry it, so, we turned around and left and I will not be coming to dine at Panera in the future.


Cheryl June 21, 2015 at 5:07 am

I am writing to you in regards to your most recent tv commercials. I am disgusted by the lack of table manners displayed in your recent commercials. I realize that you wish to convey the message that customers enjoy your menu offerings but I find it rather disturbing to see people eating as though they were raised in caves with no regard to common table manners we all learned as youngsters. People eating as though someone is going to steal their meal, food hanging out of mouths, helping themselves to plates of table mates and other repulsive behaviors.
While I am not so naive as to believe you will change these commercials because of my complaint, I felt the need to inform you that I will not be eating at Panera Bread restaurants in the future. I have not singled out your business for critique. I am equally disgusted by other commercials, I.e., Carl’s Jr., Hardees, and others that view their offerings as some sort of food orgy. It is unappetizing and gross. I do not frequent those establishments either.


Paul McKinney June 22, 2015 at 8:37 pm

I couldn’t have said it better. I rush to change the channel because of the disgusting manners. It makes me literally sick watching it. I hope that Panera bread changes them. It is not only my personal, but professional opinion. Cheers!


Melissa Mackey June 18, 2015 at 5:52 pm

A few times per month a group of us from our dog rescue eat lunch at your Clifton, VA Collonade location. We have been loyal customers for many years now. Every year I ask Panera for a donation for our silent auction fundraiser and every year you say that we don’t meet the perimeters of how you determine who gets a donation. It is too bad that you don’t support your faithful customers. I guess it is time to move onto another location of a restaurant that supports its customers. Very disappointing.


Don Hughes June 15, 2015 at 3:00 pm

First I would like to say I have eaten at Panera and enjoy the food. My wife and daughter feel the same and we have lunch here a lot. My Grandson had a baseball game in Philly. this week-end. As we live in Westminster, Maryland it is about a three hour ride so we decided to take a fruit salad along with other food to the games. When we ate the salad for lunch we noticed the cantaloupe was hard and the pineapple was sour. I contacted the store where we bought it. The manager agreed to reimburse me for the salad and send a few extra coupons. Which was very nice of him, what I did not like was his attitude. When I said the cantaloupe was hard and the pineapple was sour he said ” I can’t believe that”. So I asked him if he was calling me a liar? I got a little upset as I felt he thought I was not telling the truth. At one time I said to him he should have said I am sorry let me work something out for you. Then he said ” Are you trying tell me how to run my business, I have been doing this for thirty-five years”. I ask if he tastes the fruit and he said it comes in fresh all the time. I said it is possible you get a bad piece of fruit once in awhile. Like I said he was willing to return my money . I offered to bring some of the fruit or my wife in and he replied no. I apologized for being up set , but explained why I was. If he would have handled it better things would have gone smoother. Thank You for your time. Don Hughes


Kyle June 11, 2015 at 8:11 pm

Where do I begin… Well the Panera in lake city fl sucks!! Some of the dining room people are rude! Some of the management is horrible. They treat their employees horrible!! There was this one girl that did excellent. She was the bomb!! It took 15 mins for me to get my food then it was nasty!!! Needless to say I WILL NOT visit there again. I feel so very sorry for the employees that have to work there!!! I travel so I know what I should expect for Panera.


Chelsea June 6, 2015 at 4:42 pm

I am a frequent Panera Bread customer but the service is becoming worse with every visit. I travel to Florida and Texas often and the panera’s there are also lacking. the Panera in Houston took about 10min for any of the 5 employees I could see to acknowledge me and then the bathroom was so disgusting that I couldn’t use it. I felt so bad letting the employees know but I couldn’t let someone else get stuck in that mess. Now the Panera in Denver where I live is not even an option for a meal. I am ignored at the counter even when there are other customers waiting to order and I just watch all of the employees talk, my salad comes out wrong and dripping in tons of dressing, always out of baggets, and no one cares. I told a manager about how I was ignored (including by him) and he bought my salad which is very nice but the salad wasn’t right nor was it good.
Panera has some of the worst customer service I have experienced and I am done. Zero stars Panera!


KC June 3, 2015 at 9:51 am

I’m writing to you because the changes that are being made in the Montclair, VA store is heart breaking.
I come 4-6 times a week and I love and appreciate the family environment with employees and the those who come for the fabulous food.Chatting and expressing how much this store means to the county and me.
But building a WALL and closing off the counters and keeping the public from the staff is just an affront. Looking at the team of professionals thru a small window is horrible. I truly like and atmosphere of “Cheers” and “Friends”. They know my name and I theirs, to cut them off from the customers is shameful. Very, disappointed in you


Jacqueline June 2, 2015 at 1:57 pm

I used to enjoy the Panera Bread food and restaurants, but seems something is happening to bring down their overall satisfaction with customers. I encountered a situation yesterday, June 1, 2015 in the Daytona Beach Florida store located on International Blvd. I drove out of my way while in town for an appointment to eat at their store. Not worth it as it turned out. The store manager did not handle my complaint when I returned to the counter after I discovered by eating a few bites of my ” Potato Soup” that it contained bacon. I do not eat meat! I politely asked if it contained meat and he didn’t know. This after asking another employee at the counter ringing up customers and taking orders. She didn’t know. If they don’t know what is in their food, how can they serve the customers? The manager checks something and informs me that it contains pork. I informed him I do not eat meat and have not for most of my life and that I didn’t expect meat to be in potato soup. Instead of being sympathetic, he was instead offensive, asking me why I don’t like pork. It went from there. He finally offers to replace the soup with a different soup. I asked for a full refund. I returned the soup to him and I finished my hopefully ” veggie” sandwich and left after telling him I will not be returning to Panera Bread anywhere in the future. So disgusting! He wanted to know why I didn’t eat pork, he actually asked me, ” what is wrong, don’t you like pork?” Really? And he offered up that the potato soup was a loaded potato soup. It was not presented that way at all. It only read as this exactly: ” Potato Soup” That was my selection and I chose it. He was trying to make excuses by lying. I have gone out of my way to choose Panera Bread over the years because they seemed to focus on offering healthy choices which means no meat or clearly marked meat dishes. Not so and now, no reason to return to their stores lest I be lied to and disrespected when I complain about the meat. Those few bites made me sick and I am still dealing with it mentally. I can’t believe that manager of that store asked me why I don’t eat pork after they trick me into buying it and consuming it after many years without consuming it.


Carlee stafford May 28, 2015 at 9:33 am

I’ve been trying to get a hold of rashel for the Waynesboro va Panera. Because I reaentlt resigned an I need to know when I’m supposed to get the vacation time I earned. If someone could please reply it would be great. Thank you


Doretha May 17, 2015 at 12:36 pm

Went to Paneral Bread today 5/17/15, walk in stead in line the manager and two ladies talking , it was just like I was invisible to them. I want to see just how long I had to stand there before someone come over to help me, it was all most five minutes before I was waited on. Will not go back there any more, u would think the manager was on her toes but she wasn’t . Panera Bread in Alexandria, Va Cafe 0695.


Nicole Nicoletti May 17, 2015 at 12:36 am

I WAS DISRESPECTED hung up on, yelled, at and given false information by a manager to lodge a complaint. I made about 3-4 CALLS all had the manager, cutting my FIRST sentence off and hanging up on me. Then continued to scream AND hang up on me everytime I called back. I will call corporate OVER & OVER if I DON’T receive satisfactory. And if I’m not contacted by a higher up in corporation, I will reach out to MEDIA contacts. Corporation NEEDS to TAKE a GOOD look at their complainants, TRY taking them SERIOUSLY, YOU ONLY have your job bc of YOUR customers, I would find a WAY to LOOK INTO what’s happening in your stores!!!! I’ve never complained about a store BEFORE, so this should SHOW you how disgusted I am by panera bread!!!!!


Christopher May 15, 2015 at 12:51 pm

its a raining morning in walnut, ca. Why don’t they serve soup at 9:26 in the morning? I understand its breakfast, but it would be great to have soup on a rainy day…


Drauh May 12, 2015 at 9:50 pm

I worked for Panera bread broomall pa , I just walked out today . Panera bread is a hard company to work for . We close at and 9 and if you follow the proper guidelines for closing exactly as the book says it’s about an 1 and half to close the store . Most stores use preclose methods but we are actually not aloud to . They start at minimum wage based on experience . I tried to make it work with the company turning down other jobs , I’m a full time student I have another job . Panera slaves us doesn’t give any benefits and transportion home in the area is about an hour or hour and half long . The managers do not care about our feelings . We have a new manager who’s been with the company for about 9 months or so , she refuses to help and do ACTUAL work or assisit the employees . The district manager constantly takes her side , a whooping total of 12 employees have left our store with in the last week because of unfair behavior and complaints . There is never a day we are short on food or employees if it’s not one its another. It’s not a company I would recommend working for . No benefits , no respect and the pay is horrible . We have tried callin hr no one has responded I felt this was my only option to reach out to someone .


anonymous May 9, 2015 at 2:02 pm

saw employees of Milton Ga Winward Panera bread smoking pot at the back of the parking lot. Waited til they went in to the store then I went in and asked for the General Manager to report them. Imagine my surprise when she came out and I saw she was one of the three people smoking pot that I saw. Her nametag said Taree. I just gave up and left. Potheads run Panera Bread.


N May 8, 2015 at 10:40 am

I work at panera bread in YO, NY and just wanted to say none of the employees smile at all. The managers are rude always talking about people behind there backs and even cursing at customers calling them names. The employees when they are scheduled to close that day start closing and cleaning up and putting stuff away by 4 pm!.. yes ..4 pm.. employees like myself never leave on time they keeo us maybe an hour or 2 longer when we arent scheduled for it which ruins my own at home schedule. I’m just sick of it myself and really would like to leave anytime soon .. corporate really need to do something about this


mlesser May 3, 2015 at 8:57 am

I stopped at Panara, 1518 Market St, Des Plaines, IL 60016, I place a order prior to the store opening for a large pastry roll different flavor sweetroll cake, 24 bagels, 4 mixed cream cheese a sandwich and a small pastry. I asked if I could have a catering box – I can lay out the bagels at work – I work at a corporate office. I was declined my request by Joe the manager. I got to work and the large pastry ring was missing. Ok, mistakes happen, but what’s the big deal about providing a catering box! Not very good customer satisfaction. The money spent ordering food from Panera …providing the box is not asking much. Going forward my gift cards and food pickups will not be at Panera.


Cheryl May 2, 2015 at 8:29 am

It’s obvious that Panera is not a good place to work based on the unhappy, rude people they have behind the counters. They NEVER smile and are very rude. They have had a sign outside their door for 6 months looking for help. What does that tell you. I don’t think Corporate gives a damn. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. They constantly are low on items. At 7am they had just 2 quiches left and would be an hour before they had more. Judging from all the comments from customers, I think Panera has a BIG, BIG problem.


TMO April 28, 2015 at 6:44 am

I would like to make a complaint on the Panera Bread store located in Roanoke, VA on Valley View. There is two managers there named Joyce and John Sway who are rude not only in front of customers, but I have witnessed them being rude to the employees. The store is often short on most items. They have underage employees who work until 12 midnight when the store closes at 9pm. Isn’t it a such thing as a labor law for minors in the state of VA. I am going to continue to reach out to someone in the corporate office until those two managers get what they deserve and the place gets their a** in gear. I refuse to eat there again.


Ericka April 13, 2015 at 8:23 am

Ridiculous customer service! I placed an online order the Saturday before Easter for dinner rolls, 4/10/15. When I came to pick them up 3 hours later I was told the store only had 7. I cancelled the order and asked for a refund. A week later I am still waiting for my refund?!?!?!?!?!!?!? I have called the store three times and each time I have been assured this would be resolved and it has not, how hard can it be??? This is disappointing and I will be contacting your corporate office.


Carole April 8, 2015 at 7:18 pm

My son has also requested a duplicate W-2 and has yet to receive the first or the second one….please email me a contact name and number so we can file before April 15. He worked at Panera in Tallahasse.


Lindsay April 4, 2015 at 7:38 pm

I worked for the Panera located in Monroe, NY. I left my job there because I found a job closer to home. I went into the store the day paychecks came in, and was told that mine was already mailed to me and would be at my house in a week or so. It has been more than 3 weeks, and I have still not recieved my final paycheck. What can I do to resolve this issue?


f baby April 3, 2015 at 2:35 pm

I work for the panera in Jacksonville, fl and all of you are right.. This place is so shady it’s ridiculous. Mangers are disrespectful and rude… They call us minions another word for slaves.. They’re lazy and the store is barely passes inspections and audits.. We don’t get raises because the gm said out his mouth that he wants to get his bonus.. straight f**ery to me!!!


S.S April 2, 2015 at 2:14 pm

I worked for the new location in Northglenn, CO and the GM there is probably the most unhelpful person ever. I worked there for 3 months and he never even knew my name. He would call me a bunch of different names while I was wearing a name tag! Really?! That place needs a new GM. And when I called to get my information for my W2 he again was no help! And a different manager asked me to call back a different time because of their lunch rush. Ummm no? As a manager you should address everyone’s problems right away and not tell them to call back later? I was a manager at a different place and I wish I could’ve just said “hey call us back, we’re too busy to help you.” Not okay! Overall, I wish I never worked there!


Cara March 5, 2015 at 7:52 pm

I emailed payroll for my W2, and a guy named Robert responded once, asking which store I had worked in. I replied Superior, CO. with the store #. No reply. Emailed payroll again, and Robert responds again, asking ME if that store is a franchise!

I emailed him back directly again with the Breads of the World corporate info right of my 2013 W2. I wonder what, if any reply I will get this time!


Katlynn March 5, 2015 at 3:22 pm

The location at HollyMeade near Target in Charlottesville has the worst manger! Having workers who live so far from the store and insisting they stay during horrible weather conditions is just sick! You live mins from that location Joe! To risk the life of your staff and assistant mangers so you can slack on efforts makes the location look bad! I would never have a child work for you again and your management skills need to be re evaluated! I hope that staff make it home safe, as several are still in the process of trying. Tis is so sad. I hope everyone prays for these employees. I hope Joe never has to experience what the families of his staff that he selfishly kept to long are experiencing!


Courtney February 25, 2015 at 6:09 pm

Hello my name is Courtney, i have been waiting for weeks now for my W2 to be mailed again because my social was messed up. It does not take 3 weeks to reprint a W2 with the right social on it. So please contact me ASAP and get it fixed.

thank you, Courtney.


sade sanders March 2, 2015 at 2:59 pm

I’m waiting on a reprint w2 as well its been 3 weeks


Kim P March 11, 2015 at 10:25 am

My son was also issued a W2 with an incorrect SS# – he has been calling and leaving messages and faxing now for 6 weeks – no one will return his call. He said the incorrect W2 is no longer on the access site but the corrected one is not posted. I told him to call the IRS.


Nick C March 25, 2015 at 3:56 pm

I am currently having the same exact problem. I need a replacement w2. I spoke with someone on the phone a month ago, and they still haven’t sent one!


Patt February 25, 2015 at 5:18 pm

I too worked for a newer store in Ontario, Canada and thought it was great. Unfortunately, they hired more than they needed and they also had issues paying their employees. I was let go the end of January. In Canada, employers are to submit to the government a employee’s ROE (Record of Employment) so that they can get Employment Insurance. I was already on this but cannot get the fund released until the ROE is received. This has now been one month. In this day of electronic messaging, this does not look favourable to this employer. The manager has been very kind and helpful, but unfortunately, he does not issue the ROE’s. Can you check into this and expedite the issuing of this document. I need an income. Thank you.


Elizabeth Evans February 24, 2015 at 1:13 pm

I have been trying to reach someone in the corporate office and no one has returned my calls. I was wrongly suspended and I’m trying to talk to someone about it. I was suspended because I left work at 7:30. I was supposed to be off at 7pm. I come in the next day to work and my boss tells me we need to have a powwow. She doesn’t give me any papers to sign or anything. She said I left without saying anything to her. I did say bye and I told here I’m sorry she didn’t hear me. I’ve been with the company for almost 10 years. I should not be suspended. A whole week with out pay is wrong. And now I have people at work saying that I quit but I didn’t. I have a child and to do this to me is not right. I have seen people do a lot of wrong and nothing happens to them. I leave 30 minutes after my time and I get suspended? I need someone to call me immediately because what they are doing isn’t right.


Susan February 24, 2015 at 11:14 pm

All you need to do is file a claim with the department of labor. You will probably win unemployment for a year and you can go to school or something that will make things better for you.

Good Luck!


Taurus Morgan February 23, 2015 at 10:37 pm

I have made several attempts to get in touch with the corporate office, I am a former employee of Panera Bread in Fresno,CA @ Riverpark and need to obtain some info that you have on file. I would appreciate it if someone would call or email me asap.

Serafin Sornito Jr February 14, 2015 at 1:39 pm

I’m a frequent customer of Panera here in Seattle .The best butter croissant I have tried so
far is from Panera bakery. However, I noticed that this bread is not available most of the
time anymore unlike before . What’s up? I hope you’ll make some more as this is so popular .Otherwise I’ll just go to Starbucks whose croissant is second only to yours .


Lisa February 7, 2015 at 9:36 pm

I am hopeful that someone can straighten out the attitude of a site supervisor named Liz M. At the Greenbier Chesapeake VA location. She was so unprofessional and rude, If she was working for my business I would have fired her on the spot. I feel sorry for people working for her she has very negative energy. The young man working with her was polite and very customer service oriented. He deserves her job. This took place on 07 Feb 2015 for my daughters six birthday dinner. I really hope this email will change her attitude and way she treats the people who are supporting her job by eating at Panera. This is the first time in my life I have written such a negative review……..
was awful. Send in an undercover boss they will agree……


lisa February 6, 2015 at 2:02 pm

My son started working for a new location in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada. 4 Weeks and 3 days ago. It was new opening all new staff. No one has received a cheque yet, they keep saying there was a mix up in payroll but was fixed and tell them tomorrow the cheques will be here, well tomorrow never comes. WHAT KIND OF COMPANY IS THIS, CAUSE FOR A CLASS ACTION SUIT. people have bills to pay!!!! second call to corporate office.


Samantha Schaffer February 5, 2015 at 6:37 pm

I had visited panera bread in the district at green valley ranch in henderson Nevada on Thursday February 5,2015 around 3:30 pm. I ordered a soup to go. As I was standing there and waited I watched a worker sweep trash off the ground then go and serve food without washing her hands. This is extremely disgusting and a health hazard I can’t say I wanna eat at paneras if the employees pick up trash off the dirty floor and then touch my food.!!! Gross!


Andrecia February 3, 2015 at 11:02 am

I took my 11 year old daughter to the Panera in Germantown, MD on 2/2/15 after a doctor’s appointment. While we were there, we witnessed three girls come in via a side/back door, STEAL drinks from the soda station, curse every other breath while sitting and enjoyinig them, then get up and leave the garbage on the table and leave out the same door they came in. I was so offended. There were two other women there having lunch who also verbalized their disgust. When I mentioned it to the manager on duty, Jay, he acknowledged that he is aware of people doing this but if he says anything to them, they get mad. REALLY!?! It baffled me that this manager would rather offend 4 paying customers than confront/offend 3 hood rat thieves stealing from the business! I, personally, will not be returning to that particular Panera because it was made very obvious to me that the common thief is valued more than the paying customer.


Tyler February 10, 2015 at 2:18 pm

You a dumb hoe


Deborah Keating February 2, 2015 at 2:13 pm

Your Mozarella Panni has been my favorite item and my usual choice for purchase when I frequent your restaurants. I like it so much, sometimes my husband will come home and surprise me with several so I can freeze them and eat them any time I have that Panini craving! How great is that? When I had one recently at your restaurant, I was upset to find you changed the recipe. While it is still good it is not the same. It is also very messy. Little bits fall out every time you take a bite = stain on clothes as well. Why would you change a menu choice that was perfect in every way? Bad move!


Rayshawn January 29, 2015 at 12:29 pm

I recently applied at panarabread I was contacted by one of the regional managers in manhattan. When I returned her message the next day I didn’t get an answer. It’s been about over a month and she still hasn’t returned any of my messages. Please email me about this misunderstanding asap. Thank you


Juanita Richardson January 27, 2015 at 4:09 pm

I would like to make a complaint. I made a order by phone to your store at 3574. This was a order for a manager’s workgroup meeting. The order was for 10 people. i pick up the order at the time they said the order would be ready. When I got back to the office and pull out the items from the bag the order were all wrong. Not only was the order wrong one of the manager just inform me that he found hair in his salad. This was one of the salad that I did not order. I really would like someone to address this matter.

Thank you
Juanita Richardson


Helen McCollum January 22, 2015 at 2:08 pm

My comment/complaint is regarding the changes Panera has made regarding phone orders. I live in Redlands/San Bernardino, California area where there are two Panera restaurants within driving distance. I love this place, but I have an issue about the changes made where you need to fax in your order. As a senior citizen I take offense to that. I cannot fax in my take out order and when I try to call it in, I don’t get an answer, get ignored or left on hold for a long period of time. I know you cater to working people, but you are leaving a very large percentage of people out that cannot do anything else but call in. Please look into that. I would appreciate an answer. It is really annoying.


Jas January 19, 2015 at 7:53 pm

I have moved from my old address that is on file with Panera and would like my tax info mailed to my current address. I have contacted the postal service, but was informed to contact Panera Bread headquarters. Please let me know who I should contact.

Thank you,



Rey January 15, 2015 at 8:20 pm

I work at panera bread at porter sq and I don’t know who to talk it work with manager that wants to fire they are really trying to find a way to fire me and I’m just very upset I love panera bread but the managers are making panera the worst place to work and it’s sad because I work really hard and I take everybody shift I help the manager and all they want to do is fire me I’m just upset because I want to stay and I don’t know who to talk to :’( Help me


Barbara January 14, 2015 at 11:43 am

On Wednesday, January 7th, my daughter and I went to a movie and then wanted to have dinner. There is a Panera in the Mall, so we decided to get a sandwich and soup. When we arrived, there was no one at the register. We waited 10 minutes, then one employee says to another “Hey did you clock out”, “Yes”. Still we were being ignored. Until I asked to see a manager, we didn’t get service. The manager came out and apologized, but at that point I didn’t want to eat there anymore. My money and time are important. Racial……not sure, but this will be the last time I go to Panera and I am telling everyone I know.

I am having many problems with the Human Resources department. I have been trying to get in contact with the person in charge of Illinois payroll because I have not received two of my paychecks now. That is two separate paychecks that have not made it to me. I am outraged by the lack of response. I have called the HR department multiple times in the past few weeks. The person in charge of Illinois payroll not only is never in when I call, but she never returns my calls either! I have never been so disappointed in a company before. I have worked hard for those paychecks and I believe that I deserve to receive them! At the very least I would like a response from someone in the HR department to fix this problem.

I have not recieved one of my paychecks as well because of a mistake on the payroll as well and it has been about 3 weeks now. I am getting frustrated because I have bills to pay and need my pay.
