    Pros

    The crew was really fun and entertaining. I loved helping the customers and tasting the delicious doughnuts.This one lady, Summer, made my day every time we worked together, she was the sweetest, funniest, most kind hearted person I have yet to meet.

    Cons

    Inconvenient hours, rude, grumpy customers that really test your nerves. This one customer got all pissed off at ME, because Krispy Kreme doesn't sell kolaches. He was yelling and cussing me out all because his son wasn't satisfied with our wide spread collection ofdoughnuts.

    Advice to Management

    Do not push people over the edge or they will not come back because they fell and didn't have the effort or encouragement to crawl all the way up that mountain.

    Pros

    Great place to work if you like to eat and taste test doughnuts. They do offer continuing education classes. I really liked the team I was on. Great women who knew how do get the job done.

    Cons

    Given a lot of busy work. I really didn't feel like I fit in. The finance department was almost entirely women and of course very competitive women. Good ole boy or gal network.

    Advice to Management

    Onboard new employees better, give expectations on position, explain office environment.

    Pros

    Weekly pay, 50% discount while off the clock, doughnuts free while on the clock, taught how to make different beverages and some coworkers.

    Cons

    Hours and management. The assistant manager tried to accuse me of stealing $3 from my drawer. Then when I asked her to pull my drawer since I was getting off the clock she got a little attitude. I still don't like her till this very day. The GM's were barely there or descent managers. I only worked once, twice or three times a week for a few hours then went home. Only time I stayed overtime was when the GM asked me to or on KK's birthday.

    Pros

    I enjoy driving being on the road by myself. Talking to customers , telling me how much they enjoyed our product. I also like the company discount.

    Cons

    I didn't care for the shift I worked. I had a lot of problems with my truck that wasn't taken care of.

    Advice to Management

    I think management need to sometimes listen to enployees about their concerns.
