    Pros

    You get free donuts and it's fun to a degree

    Cons

    Manual labor.. I had no idea I would have had to package the donuts as if i were working at a manufacturing company. Lots of work for little pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more organized

    Pros

    Free donuts,nothing like the FIRST day working at krispy kreme! I worked at one in Southern California. So chill sometimes and being a man its nice working with a bunch of girls.. You get to meet a lot of their girlfriends if your nice ;). Can customize your donuts.

    Cons

    Well... Everything was going great till they left me on nights and had me working weekends every week...and that's not fun. Weekend nights are super busy and it was running my patiences.. New managers at my location and one of them was about to get me fired if he tried to yell at me one more time (I have problems when someone yells at me.) The general manager was a cool person but did not promote me when this person would tell me I'm a hard worker...promoted a lazy chick within 2 months hired and ticted me off...now I work somewhere else :).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    QUIT it with the new rules! More rules = upset employees. Upset employees = bad service. Bad service = less customers in the future. I'm not even done with college and even I get it. Also make more krispy kreme locations... When you guys do the "buy one dozen get a second dozen free" days the machines can't keep up with Americas many junk food fanatics... New more locations in Orange county / Los Angeles to please customers.

    Pros

    Time passes quickly and I enjoy working here, a really great group of people.

    Cons

    Have to keep an eye on everything that is going on, it is an easy job yet and easy job to mess up on if your not really paying attention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more constructive critism, be more open to ideas.

    Former Employee - Manager in Lubbock, TX

    I worked at Krispy Kreme

    Pros

    You get to eat all the doughnuts you want. The hours are not too terrible for a restaurant. For being in the food service industry it is a relatively easy place to work.

    Cons

    When things break it is a pain in the a$$. There is no established training procedures for new employees or if there are they are disregarded completely/not made available to management which can make new employees feel a little overwhelmed at first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Well for our franchise store the in store leadership was great. I feel that the corporate leadership could have used a little more direction in the things they were trying to achieve through our store.
