    Pros

    Free bagels
    good hours for the industry
    livablebenefits
    A good store manager will make the store nice to work at

    Cons

    Constant change in the corporate standards make longevity within the company difficult.
    A bad or cruel manager can turn the job into a living hell
    The pay isn't increasing, but the work is
    Benefits downgraded the last three years straight
    Bonuses almost completely eliminated
    Constant cost cutting in labor hours and food quality
    Low Morale

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For the love of all that is good, stop tinkering with what worked! The customers can taste how cheap we've gotten, the good employees are leaving for greener pastures, and your firing your best producers for taking care of thier customers instead of the catering department. It looks like one big cluster____ from the store level.

    Pros

    Consistent pay check, decent health benefits, reasonable hours for a restaurant operations, good entail concept, middle management growth obtainable for most

    Cons

    long hours, ever changing bonus plan to eliminate as much payouts as possible, the consent changing in direction of company, poor management and planning, corporate office is discontented with employees and customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    do your market research before bringing change, learn how to execute roll outs with more consideration to production, increase numbers allocated to labor expense

    I worked at Noah's Bagels

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good hours, meet lots of great people. Opportunity for personal growth. Experience running a legitimate business in a retail environment.

    Cons

    Corporate management felt that they knew better than anyone else what was best for their franchisees. Never took into consideration suggestions from the people in the trenches. Menu was too large, food costs too high, support was minimal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your franchisees. They are the ones that are out there every day working the system. If they are telling you something isn't working, help them fix it. Stop being a follower and start being a leader in the QSR category.
