Pros

Free food, Learning a POS.

Cons

Terrible 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 Management

Check 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.

    Pros

    I like the customers and most fo the people I work with

    Cons

    It's hard to move up in the company. Your lucky if you get a $.25 raise max at your review time (which they never show you so you don't know what they really write)

    Advice to Management

    your experience should count for something, not how cute you are (at least that's how it is at my store)
