    Awesome place to work

    Pros

    The whole environment is awesome. All employees are very nice. I wasn't thrown in not knowing what to do. They trained me every step of the way. All of the managers are extremely nice. Employee discount when you're working and off the clock is a plus. I am not a morning person, but I enjoy going in to work even at 6:30 in the morning. I haven't been there long at all and I have already picked up an extra shift.

    Cons

    At this point I have zero cons. I just think that if you are going to apply for a job in what would be considered "fast food" then don't expect amazing pay. I make $8 an hour plus tips that are shared by everyone. It's not a hard job. I have been here two weeks and I already know just about everything. I go in already knowing what to do. I don't have to ask what needs to be done.

    I have been working at Einstein Bros. Bagels full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I interviewed around 10-12 months ago. I wore a suit and tie to a fast casual restaurant job, I was willing to work weekends, they were interested in my social media profiles, and very solid resume, and knew that I had a year of work experience restaurants under my belt while in college, in addition to many other skills and much more advanced work experience as well as management experience too, that I was taking advanced courses and willing to do the baking, I hit a bump around month 3 then went on to be the number one person there, not that others are not extremely bright, gifted, talented, and hard working, for instance our caters are super hard working, are management brilliant, even the young management, our staff are super friendly and warm. However, senior management expects such life things to come up within reason. Bottom line, I like everyone there, and they like me very much for the most part.

    Cons

    early to rise, early to bed kinda of deal

    Advice to Management

    keep rocking it

    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!)
