I worked at Noah's Bagels

Pros

Free bagels
good hours for the industry
livablebenefits
A good store manager will make the store nice to work at

Cons

Constant change in the corporate standards make longevity within the company difficult.
A bad or cruel manager can turn the job into a living hell
The pay isn't increasing, but the work is
Benefits downgraded the last three years straight
Bonuses almost completely eliminated
Constant cost cutting in labor hours and food quality
Low Morale

Advice to ManagementAdvice

For the love of all that is good, stop tinkering with what worked! The customers can taste how cheap we've gotten, the good employees are leaving for greener pastures, and your firing your best producers for taking care of thier customers instead of the catering department. It looks like one big cluster____ from the store level.
