    I worked at Paradise Bakery & Café full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Most of the managers were pretty decent, lots of good people to work with in the back of the house, Generous pay, room for advancement, and free food.

    Cons

    Management is not allowed by corporate to fire poor workers simply for being bad at their jobs, which means that if you work hard, you'll just have to do someone else's job too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the garbage employees or keep losing your good ones, I loved doing my job but didn't want to do my coworkers jobs too.

    I worked at Paradise Bakery & Café full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The coworkers I had were alright, for the most part. The job itself wasn't bad at all, but the Signal Butte/Baseline location was horrible.

    Cons

    The most dysfunctional group of managers I've ever worked with. One chewed dip inside the restaurant while on the clock, one ignored blatant health violations and had an excuse for everything, and another harassed the employees daily about a dress code that she didn't even follow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new job.

    Pros

    People are fun to work with.

    Cons

    Anyone could call out thirty minutes before their shift began. It messed up the closing crew ALL the time. Worked more than scheduled all the time. Very busy environment and always running out of food!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider a no calling out policy and stop favoring people.

    I have been working at Paradise Bakery & Café

    Pros

    The food is good and you get a 70% discount if you work that day.

    Cons

    They took away the 40% off-duty employee discount and raised prices. The managers give raises to the people they feel like no matter their job performance while I have been working there longer than a lot of them and do not even get paid starting wage. It is unfair as I am head cashier and have a lot of responsibilities that others do not. The people I train just starting out make significantly more money than I make there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice ethics.
