I worked at Einstein Bros. Bagels

Pros

Pay was great, and most store hours are very reasonable. The company does an excellent job with the service of their equipment. Management reports are very simple and easy to follow and the training manuals are second to none.

Cons

Downsides are minimal, really come down to the early rising. Most openers get there at 3:30am. Other than that, there aren't too many downsides.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My only wish, and it came to being when I left, was that the senior management listen/talk to the GM's and store level employees before implementing certain changes. When I left they actually formed a committee of the most talented GM's as a think tank and that is something they needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote within
    Pay what your staff is worth
    Don't make polices that are vague or management does not have control over like missing paper work from an a office space that is in middle of kitchen with no door and place to lock up.

    Free coffee
    Small shops, easier to clean
    Average High school job

    Cons

    By far the worst management of any company I've worked for. Being a large corporation, Einsteins really could not care less about its employees. The only clear goal for the company is cost cutting. Qualiy continues to plummet as executives race to find the cheapest alternatives. Management is cycled through quickly and in 3 years I've had 4 different assistant managers and 4 different general managers, all of which were terminated. Regional corporate hot shots travel store to store preaching the upcoming corporate audits to vastly underpaid staffs. After 4 years I've received a total of $0.75 cents in raises, 25 of which were mandatory due to new minimum wage laws. In the same amount of time a close friend worked at a local grocery store and received a total of $3.75 in raises. Bottomline you do NOT want to work here. You'll be vastly underpaid and overworked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating your employees like corporate slaves. Give your employees their rightfully deserved raises and reimplement the tip policy. Your employees deal with rude customers on a regular basis yet receive no compensation for any of their extra efforts. No other company I've worked for dehumanizes their staff more. Start from scratch and build the future on quality, quality employee treatment and quality food product as well. It costs $0.17 for a bagel, trim the profit margin slightly and invest in quality. Happy employees work better and harder so make them happy.
