    I worked at Corner Bakery Cafe part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very consistent work environment and the staff is always positive. The management was also very helpful in the beginning when I was interested in being hired.

    Cons

    Seeing as it was only a part-time it was a little hard to get time off, but this is normal for the job I held.

    Overall doing great on corporate level but give advisement to your franchisees to reward hard work with regular performance increases.

    I worked at Corner Bakery Cafe part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    When I was here, I performed all front of house roles. Everyone was friendly, and everyone was friends with each other. That's what made it fun. Nice 50% employee discount, with free soft drinks. Work was never boring, and it's a great place to train in the food industry, because despite the many tasks & responsibilities, you can move on somewhere else and find it to be a piece of cake in comparison.

    Cons

    A LOT of physical work, you need to be able to lift. it will keep you pretty active. Rush hours can become difficult, as it's usually understaffed.

    Pros

    Learn a lot, Great experiences, no late hours. Very responsive upper management. Highly demanding, but if you put up with the ridiculous demands and requests of you, there is opportunities abound.

    Cons

    A lot depends on your supervisor, there are a few bad GM's. If you get lucky and your GM treats you right, it is an awesome company to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect people's time, and allow a bit more of a work life balance.
