    Pros

    The crew was really fun and entertaining. I loved helping the customers and tasting the delicious doughnuts.This one lady, Summer, made my day every time we worked together, she was the sweetest, funniest, most kind hearted person I have yet to meet.

    Cons

    Inconvenient hours, rude, grumpy customers that really test your nerves. This one customer got all pissed off at ME, because Krispy Kreme doesn't sell kolaches. He was yelling and cussing me out all because his son wasn't satisfied with our wide spread collection ofdoughnuts.

    Advice to Management

    Do not push people over the edge or they will not come back because they fell and didn't have the effort or encouragement to crawl all the way up that mountain.

    Pros

    Once you get the hang on how to make the doughnuts, make the drinks and handle the POS system, it gets so much easier. Other than that its just stocking and cleaning most of the time.

    Cons

    Big events(free doughnut day/ buy a dozen get the second dozen for 78 cents/ etc.) are extremely stressful and never in my 3 years of working there are we adequately staffed or stocked. everything runs out. luckily its only once a year. Scheduling is a mess.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the current scheduling system and schedule at least 2-3 weeks beforehand.

    Pros

    Best job for teens starting out in the work force. Really easy and no special skills are necessary for this position.

    This position can be very overwhelming during specials. Sometimes customers can be very unruly when some products become unavailable.

    It was a good franchise to work for once the owner fired his sister. Good benefits and good pay.

    Long hours and you're on your feet 90% of the time. The work can be hard sometimes, it was fun though.
