    I worked at Au Bon Pain part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a really easy job.

    Cons

    It got really boring because if you work 2nd shift then sometimes it would go hours before you would have another customer. So your just standing for 8 hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it comfortable for the cashier.

    Pros

    Discounts on food
    The people I worked with were fun, but knew when to get down to business
    Always had something to do, so time went by fast

    Cons

    You stink after work
    Always seeing and working with the food made me sick of it
    Some shifts were either really busy or really slow, so you were either really bored or really overwhelmed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Scheduling better during busy hours and slow hours of the day
