    .

    The manager, Rod P., is a dishonest business man. He hired me as a dishwasher and said he would not pay me minimum wage "because then you will do minimum work". I do every job I have to the best of my ability.

    But what happened was they omitted 6.5 hours of my first week's pay, sent the paycheck to the wrong apt. number so it was returned to headquarters, set my pay rate at $0.25 (3.5%) over minimum wage, and even had my name spelled wrong.

    By the time they got my address info. right (I had to suggest the apt. number was recorded wrong by them) I saw the wage rate and it confirmed that I was dealing with a disrespectful, unprofessional supervisor.

    The next day when I worked (Dec. 14, 2010), I put my two weeks notice in writing along with accurate statements about a worker who did not wash his hands after using the restroom, Rod always acting bothered when I told him policy violations and such.

    He retaliated by finding a new dishwasher, and when that person showed up as I was leaving on Dec. 19, 2010, he fired me. A great holiday spirit from a puke of a man.

    I did my job right, but this mega corporation would rather treat an honest worker as disposable and move on to a new worker and 'use' him. I got along well and liked my co-workers and was never told that there was ever a pan or dish that needed better cleaning. Amazing how inefficient conglomerates are.

    Recycling is not valued at this cafe, and you should consider the big carbon imprint they make by trucking dough daily from Houston to the Dallas area, only recycling some of the cardboard they use at this location (no plastic), and all the plastic cups that are used for the drinks. Another Panera policy that is on paper about being green - but goes out the door when they live out how they do business.

    Also, look at the table tops when you go there. Often times there will be crumbs showing the table was not sanitized after the last person. More than one cashier there either wipes them off with his/her dry hand or just leaves it thinking it "looks clean".

    I called the Panera ethics violation hotline today to report this retaliation and asked to be paid through the 28th if they needed to get rid of me fast. I also stated I wanted to know if I am eligible to work at a different Panera location.

    Perhaps they will get in touch, but I could tell the company had already done an investigation (my resignation letter was likely faxed to Rod's boss - a likely corporate policy). So I believe the company as a whole must treat workers as disposable - if a worker calls a supervisor on not keeping his word and then resigns, the mega corporation wants a fresh body in and to can the reliable, honest worker they already had trained and working fine.

    There is no use in giving a two week notice anymore unless you don't need the pay for your rent and food and all your other bills. Being ethical with Panera doesn't seem to be valued, but I bet a Panera manager would run you down and be disappointed if you treated them (quitting the day you choose with no notice) as they treat their workers.
