    Pros

    Great work atmosphere. Franchise owner is amazing and really compassionate. All the employees got along with each other and had a good attitude.

    Cons

    High turnover due to low pay and pretty complex and always changing menu. It's hard to get orders ready quickly and can easily get backed up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stream line order taking and sandwich board, maybe take some things off the menu to make it less complicated.

    Former Employee - Cashier

    I worked at Einstein Bros. Bagels part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The work is enjoyable at first. Serving people delicious bagel sandwiches and making people happy made me really enjoy the job when I started. The people were fun to work with, until members started leaving suddenly.

    Cons

    Very high expectations and little training from the start.
    Management shoves you aside to do the work instead of trying to help out.
    Nagged on for not being able to micro-manage the entire restaurant as a lone cashier working minimum wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have to respect your team members to get respect from them.

    Pros

    Depending on who you work with, it can be fun, and if you like fast paced, it's a good place to be

    thw pay absolutely sucks and they make it way too difficult to get a raise, and if u ever get one, won't be more than .25 which is a bunch of crap

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to make everything better, you're just complicating the system even more

    Pros

    Comfortable environment. Great people to work with. Boss is very understanding and wants you to succeed. Tries to get you all the training you need to be able to do your job and be happy with it.

    Cons

    Nothing to really say here. The only con was that it was a sales position and that requires a lot of cold calling and long hours but pushing through it with the correct team (these guys) was totally worth it and I learned a lot. (So still pretty much a positive here!)
