I have been working at Noah's Bagels full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great hours, no late nights and as many or as few as you want. Good people around you, get to make lots of friends. The work itself is not hard at all, its a bagel shop.

Cons

Low pay, 1-2 dollars lower in every position compared to companies in the same shopping center. Incredibly high turnover, only worked for about a year and a half and was there longer then 98 percent of people.

    I worked at Noah's Bagels full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary higher than most similar companies.

    Cons

    EVERYONE GETS FIRED! Despite the constant encouragement from Chief Operating Officer to Run it like you own it, the middle managers are in a constant state of firing people to avoid getting fired themselves. One time four location managers got fired on the same day. Many stores go months or years without any manager at all. Best advice, work your way up to GM, prove yourself for a few months and then get out before they decide to fire you for a crazy reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide pay stubs bi weekly. Pay managers for all the hours they put in outside their stores, like reading emails and taking calls from stores. Don't encourage managers to run it like they own it, tell them the truth, run it like the shareholders need instant cash.
