    Pros

    Great hours, no grease. Easy job.

    Cons

    Usually understaffed, the company doesn't pay their employees well.

    Advice to Management

    Staff the place appropriately. Pay the shift leads and assistant managers more. Stop telling everyone how much money YOU make to those who make minimum wage.

    The pay sucks I cant really say anything bad about this company because the general manager made it a great place to work and made it family oriented

    Raise the pay after 1 year automatically Switch the schedules around so that one one person is doing all the cleaning

    Pros

    Customers were wonderful, opportunities to be cross trained in many different positions so that the same thing is not done every day, great staff and my managers although inexperienced, have been a privilege to work for. Flexible schedule and I can put my kids to bed every evening because of no night shifts.

    Cons

    Absolutely no room for advancement, Einstien's promised a weeks paid vacation after a full years employment (part or full time) but when my anniversary with them came up I was told that was only for salary (general and assistant manager) only. Raises with promotions were absolutely pathetic and raises for those without promotions were virtually non existent, no matter the length of time with the company. Ownership spent absolutely "0" time in the store and had no ideas about how the day to day operations worked nor did they care about customer or employee satisfaction. Cheap, rude, sexist, entitled pigs are the people I dedicated 42 hours a week of my life to for over a year to be denied promotions, raises and a one week vacation. ABSOLUTELY NO BENEFITS AS IN INSURANCE WHATSOEVER, not even for management. Owners and catering manager gave away on average $3,000 worth of food for free every month to doctors and random people in the area saying it "promoted business." Being there over a year, I never once saw a single customer come in because of our tastings. Why would they? They got free food every week so they didn't need to come pay for it. They did make sure to use 3 of their $5 off coupons every tine they came in for breakfast though so they still got free food, and still had 25 coupons to spare. A great way to run a business that only generated $18,000 a month into the ground if you ask me. Einstiens in Chattanooga at least if things keep going the way they are won't be around for much longer.

    Advice to Management

    Cooperate NEEDS much more involvement, ownership will be the downfall of Einstein's Chattanooga. there is no structure and a good way to hire nothing but crap employees with a high turnover rate is the pay them the pathetic pennies they are now and never allow them to move up due to tattoos, sex, appearance, or whatever other excuse they can come up with.
