    I worked at BIG Apple Bagels full-time

    Pros

    A lot of opportunity for advancement at the store level. I was promoted twice during the time I worked there. Corporate managers very personable and approachable.

    Cons

    Schedule changes week to week. Hours vary. I sometimes had to be at work at 2 or 3 am to bake bagels, sometimes at 5 am to open the store and sometimes worked afternoon/evening hours to close store.

    I worked at BIG Apple Bagels part-time

    Pros

    There's several pros. First, I loved that it was in a small space. I felt like I didn't have to worry about trekking to some far away land to get a single task done. Second, I had my first encounter with customer service, and in all honesty still use all of the same techniques I learned at B.A.B.. Third, I learned how to multi-task like a complete pro, as well as learning a ton about every facet of the food industry on a small scale. Something that not many people can ask for, but could definitely use.

    Cons

    The one and only down side was one of the pros. Although I loved the small workspace, at times it was hectic getting around two co workers during the lunch rush.

    I worked at BIG Apple Bagels

    Pros

    Big apple Bagels is a great place to work for because they have a great management structure. The pros of working at Big Apple Bagels is that the mangers treat you fair. They have flexible work hours for you to work at. Not to mention that since its a bagel store your hours are mostly from the morning to late lunch time.

    Cons

    The downside for working at Big apple Bagels is that sometime you have to wake up really early for the job. For an example you have to some time get up at 3 in the morning to bake bagels. other downside would be sometime you have to deal with nasty customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management is that they should be more involved with their employees. Also management should not play favors to certain employees.
