    I worked at Einstein Bros. Bagels part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Loved being able to help the customers and although it was very busy most of the time due to the proximity of the restaurant to the university, it was alot of fun to work with everyone.

    Cons

    The space issue was pretty bad for our restaurant, as well as the long lunch lines and college schedules of most of the workers slowed things down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have better transitions for shifts so customers don't suffer

    Horribly organized and low paying.

    I have been working at Einstein Bros. Bagels full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fresh bagels to eat daily! Great hours if you have a family, most General Managers work 4am-2pm.

    Cons

    Pay is under the industry standard. Every single interaction with upper management has felt sneaky and dodgy. I know more than a few fellow coworkers who were promoted and promised better pay, given all of their new responsibilities, then were never given the promised pay raise. There's a store in my district with no General Manager, and a Assistant Manager in training running the store, for Shift Manger pay. The poor man is held to the standard of a GM while making 16k a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay closer attention to your Area Business Managers. They are giving our company a bad reputation for taking advantage of hard working employees.
