    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.

    Lacks benefits
    Not much room to move forward

    Advice to Senior ManagementSchedules done a bit sooner, improved in the last year I was there

    A great first job

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsAllows you to learn how to work in a fast paced environment and deal with difficult situations and even more difficult people. You can knock it, but these are important skills to learn in life.

    Most locations I've seen, especially the one I worked at, had a familial bond between employees which is something that empowers employees to deal with even the most difficult situations

    ConsI know it probably goes without saying, working in fast food and all, but some of the customers are downright cruel. Throughout my time there, I was screamed at, verbally abused, had coffee thrown at me, and was even threatened a few times by angry customers. However, this is generally more than made up for by nice customers who always brightened my day, often telling a joke. Even after I stopped working there, I sometimes saw regular customers around and they went out of their way to say hello to me.

    When I worked there, the starting hourly was ridiculously low (I think exactly minimum) with only the vague promise of a 5 cent raise every year

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone
