I have been working at Einstein Bros. Bagels full-time for less than a year

Pros

Discounts or free food, free coffee and soda constantly, and some of the funniest coworkers I've ever had.

Cons

Early mornings, poor pay, some typical fast-food management. Don't expect benefits- there are a lot of knots in the system.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't lie to your staff. If you have to, just say you can't talk about something. Try treating your employees appropriately and see if your turnover rate gets better.

    Little to no help from upper level management - high expectations without the help to get there

    Pros

    The people that I hired and invested time and training were great people, as were the customers and the community!

    Cons

    Budgets are not achievable in these economic times, and the level of assistance from direct supervisor is not the kind that is true leadership it is more telling and you doing.

    I worked at Einstein Bros. Bagels part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Managers were great
    Off by 4pm
    Learned Spanish

    Cons

    Pay was horrid
    Top down economics makes it so company NEVER grows or makes money
    Won't even buy you lunch as you make minimum wage

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask you STORE how to approach customer sales not upper level that doesn't know anything. Corporate is useless when it comes to sales within this company.
