Terrible experience

Cashier/Barista (Former Employee) Charlotte, NC

ProsFree food, Learning a POS.

ConsTerrible management. Always ran out of bread. Insects on pastries, because trash can is located directly beside it. Sometimes sheet pans were placed on top of the trash cans. Late on catering orders. Run out of products for weeks at a time. Workers on line are rude. Bagels dropped on floor and re-used. Rarely ever employees used gloves. Either over staffed or under staffed. Trainers had no clue what to do, neither did management. I had to learn the job by observing other employees. Some of the days I would open, things were stocked incorrectly or not at all.

Advice to Senior ManagementCheck in on managers, because the problems started with the general management. I did not enjoy my time at my location, because I didn't know what was expected from me.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
