    Pros

    meet different customers everyday, put a smile on children's faces, pay was ok

    Cons

    no/expensive benefits, management hates when you decide to take a sick day/personal day/vacation although it's accrued, very unorganized upper management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you should actually care a little bit about your employees

    Pros

    It really is satisfying to see how happy, and thrilled some customers are, especially when they order hot doughnuts!

    Cons

    Terrible role management, bad staffing, rude employees. Sometimes you're all alone on drive-thru when you're expected to prepare the order, cash out the customer, whilst paying attention to the belt and customers up at the front.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A more clear, concise schedule of who does what! Employees are not co-operative with each other, and require order.

    Pros

    Who doesn't love doughnuts? It really is fun to share the joy of Krispy Kreme. Great benefits and wellness programs.

    Cons

    Inconsistent application of company policies on conduct, scheduling, work output and job advancement. I don't know many employees who are doing the work they interviewed for or is on their job description. Favoritism and elitism may be the reason for huge turnover in Supply Chain, Finance and Training departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    KK is no longer a small family run business, please act and run it like the large multinational company that it is.

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Easy going pace. The work is not to demanding. Smells great when you walk in.

    Cons

    Pay is low and not a lot of available hours. The occasional difficult customer is always a bummer. Sick of the smell by the time you go on break.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people more hours to people who actually need them.
