    Fun place to work

    Tom Hortons - Store Front/Baker (Current Employee)
    Morgantown, WV

    ProsEasy-going fun place to work. The kids who have problems haven't worked other places and can't compare.

    ConsMinimum wage job - is good for kids just starting out in the workforce, or older folks who just want a supplemental income, without stress.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to be better at stocking supplies --and the product being produced - some of the "Bakers" are sending out donuts that look bad, and no one wants to buy an unappetizing donut - it just adds to waste - because I will toss them when I get in and can't fix them, and if I am not there to do that, I doubt they get sold.
