    Pros

    Great atmosphere, supportive team, everyone working towards the same goals. Salaries are comparable, upper management really cares about retention of entry level up to managers.

    Cons

    Company doesn't grow fast enough for more opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on growing

    Pros

    The work is easy and pays alright for high school/college students. If you get mad at your job here you are just doing something wrong because a monkey could do it. Free food too so that is cool.

    Cons

    The job is boring at times and the management barely passed middle school. Also do not work in the bakery I hear it sucks a lot so don't do that.

    Advice to Management

    don't suck

    Pros

    1. Competent and personable management 2. Employee benefits - can be part of the UCFW Union, health insurance for employees working as least 20 hours/week, retirement fund available as well 3. Upper management is aware of and involves employees in the business- quarterly meetings inform everyone of things such as sales, expansion, new products etc.

    Cons

    Depending on your department,the hours may not be super flexible so if you're a student or have other responsibilities it may or may not be a good place for you to work. Also, some of the hipster kids they hire goof off even in front of customers and some will give you attitude if you don't look "cool" enough.

    Advice to Management

    Bring more variety to the prepared foods and baked goods!

    Pros

    flexible scheduling, embrace living your life not your job. People love their work there and are easy to get along with (in the Administrative offices)

    Cons

    Had to wait full year to get benefits because my job's hours were reduced to below full time. Some changes take a long time because it is a smaller and frugal Cooperatively run business

    Advice to Management

    get better benefits for part time staff (above 20 hours a week)
