    When you first begin the drinks will be the hardest to master. I'll give you 2 weeks max and then you'll be making drinks like a champion !

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Our managers, upper and lower class are all extremely well trained with amazing personalities. If we ever need help in production or retail they are always there to lend a hand and also give some advise as to what we should do if the situation was ever to occur again ツ

    Pros

    Customers are happy to come into the store 90% of the time. The support team from Krispy Kreme Doughnut Corporation is awesome. They provide great training materials and are available by phone or email for just about anything. The company promotes from within as much as possible and reward good employees with salary raises and praise.

    Cons

    The 10% of not so happy customers can be a drag but luckily it isn't often. It's no fun to smile when a customer is griping about something but it can be fun to try to change their attitude through friendliness and accomdation. I also don't like smelling like a doughnut when I leave -- but there are worse things to smell like! :)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue selling those amazing hot glazed doughnuts and support your employees!
