    Pros

    Free doughnuts. As a first job I thought I made a lot. Then I realized the better opportunities out there.

    Cons

    At the end of the day your back hurts. Uniform isn't the best. You have to throw away hundreds of doughnuts a day and cannot take them home unless you buy them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the week schedules!!!

    I worked at Krispy Kreme

    Pros

    Unlimited amount of doughnuts, get the rush of helping customers and putting a smile on a child face.

    Cons

    Some manager treat you like robots and take their employees for granted. Dealing with a lot of issues with the doughnut fryer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please treat your employees like they are your family instead of your slaves. We do a lot more than what people see. If you keep taking us for granted you will continue to constantly lose employees.

    Pros

    flexible schedule. easy to get into a higher position if you are willing to do the work. great job if you are in school.

    Cons

    there is no communication between management and employees. store was smaller than other stores (good/bad thing). not a lot of employees working during most shifts. hours of operation (monday-thursday 6am-12am) (friday - saturday 24 hours) (sunday store closes at 11am). people are picky about the days and hours that they want to work).

    Pros

    after you learn everything it is very simple and easy work. People you work with are sometimes in and out because of turnover but hey its not come to work and do nothing, its a job so some folks get mad because they are told to do something.

    Cons

    don't get paid much. sometimes management has no clue at times. although it isn't the best pay i can say it is a nice place to work, as long as you are able to work together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let employees take some doughnuts home for free instead of dumping thousands every night... maybe pay a tad more
