Pros

Free drinks and coffee Discount on food Free bakery items after closing Great people to work with Nice atmosphere Coworkers will help you adjust to working anywhere

Cons

Sick of food after a few weeks A new employee hired every day Different managers every day Pay is too low Cutting hours, not enough for everyone Some managers are JERKS Customers are extremely RUDE and MEAN and completely RIDICULOUS

Advice to Management

Schedule should be available online, always calling or coming in on days off is extremely annoying for some just to get our schedules Starting pay should be higher and equal for everyone until they prove themselves capable STOP BEING JERKS NO YELLING, KEEP IT CIVILIZED

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Easy to get hired.

    Cons

    Low pay (most start at minimum wage or within 25 cents). Few opportunities for raises. Management is incredibly useless and often gets in the way of normal activities, such as making food and cleaning up. Management also very unpleasant during normal interactions. High expectations with little reward.

    Advice to Management

    Pay higher wages. Stick to managing and don't interfere with production.


  2. Learned communication and team work skills
