    It was just okay, not really fun

    Former Employee - Cashier in Milpitas, CA

    I worked at Grain D'or part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Most employees and supervisors are nice. You can ask for a higher wage. Flexible Schedule. Most customers are nice. You get tips. Good training. You get discounts. You can to take one or a few pastries home, just don't make it noticeable and ask your supervisor.

    Cons

    When you first start out they give you Very little hours and won't give you more until you learn about their products (bread and sandwiches). It's Boring. You have to like customer service. Managers need to schedule less people because the work floor gets too crowded. Some employees don't care about simply greeting their customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give positive, constructive comments to your employees. Take notice of which employees are giving good or bad customer service. Give your employees goals to look forward to.

    I worked at Grain D'or full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Starting pay is at least minimum, if not a few cents more. Some advancement opportunities. Sick leave is an option after 3 months. No healthcare, unless you're salary, but if you're in SF the company pays for Healthy SF, so one can sign up for that. Small quarterly bonuses IF your store does well. Good for college students, or those in need of part-time work. Work is simple, if you can be friendly, follow directions, will clean, and aren't too lazy this will be a pleasant experience. 20% Employee discount on all products, and 50% during the last hour before closing.

    Cons

    Company can't seem to afford to pay employees much, so even raises are very very small. Don't do full-time, unless you're a real people person, because that's why most people seem to quit. They can't handle the stress. No free meals/food (discount only). Uniform is mandatory (this is a pro/con, depending on how often you do laundry).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treating employees well and with respect will usually return the favor in multitudes. Just being nice will really help keep some good people, and even polish future managers for stores.

    I have been working at Grain D'or

    Pros

    Coworkers are awesome, the pastries, breads, and dishes all look and smell delicious, work isn't very hard.

    Cons

    Management could be better and employees could be treated better as well. Customers can also be so impatient, rude, and picky.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to find some ways to show your employees you appreciate them.
