    Bruegger's offers a very flexible schedule and is willing to aid its employees when they begin to struggle.

    It is a fast-paced environment and the work, as a baker, is not worth the payment.

    Raise the pay

    Pros

    Good pay...fair benefits, no late nights.

    Cons

    No support system, got six of the eight weeks of training, no time with a seasoned manager. You are required to work 50 a week, but be prepared to work 65-70. Be prepared to work all positions, because you will as a GM. No late nights, but be at work at 4:30 am.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp the training system.

  11. Good company for part time work for a college student. Most customers are nice and management is willing help.
