    Part-Time Job

    Cashier (Former Employee) Palisades Park, NJ

    ProsGood part-time job throughout college. Hours were extremely flexible and management is very understanding.

    ConsPay raises were extremely volatile. I would receive 3 in a year then none the following.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Manager

    Assistant Manager (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsThe company has a lot of potential to grow. Depending on the location you can get high paced work ( I mean if you like that), good people, and a very friendly environment. Also discounts on bread, pastries, and cake

    ConsThe company has a lot of problems where it really shows in the structural hierarchy. Because it is a Korean based company, a lot of orders from above have to be reviewed by the Korean board in South Korea and that takes time. Trying to get a promotion or a raise in salary felt very biased on a racial standard and the company does not encourage a strong work environment for the employee to seek these opportunities. Also, there doesn't seem to be a set policy book that follows US standards. The company comes from abroad and still has not adapted to US standards.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA creation of a proper policy book that adheres to US standards and laws. Better opportunity and a proper system in salary raises and growth in the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Full of potentials, but will take some time for benefits

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros-The brand itself has a lot of potentials, and has plenty of room for growth
    -Sales crew are generally friendly, and management is nice

    Cons-most of the upper division heads lack fluency in English
    -company's originated from Korea, so some of the ways the things run seem to be a bit shakey for American market

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I see the potential of this company

    Assistant Manager (Current Employee) Fort Lee, NJ

    ProsGood product supports from HQ.
    Nice pastries & cakes.
    Able to see lots of potential of this company to grow big.

    Conslow payment, Korean system, no other bonus, no over-time payment for managers

    Advice to Senior ManagementSince it's Korean company, the style is very different then here.
    Senior managers are lack of English skill

    It's a bread shop... what do you expect?

    Counter Clerk (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsYou get to eat a lot of bread and pastries that actually taste pretty good. It is a part time gig.

    ConsIt's a good job for high schoolers and college students but aside from management positions you are not going to move forward professionally.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet your workers more involved in the everyday management happenings in the work place. Or else it will simply be errands everyday.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
