    Pros

    Great coworkers! The coworkers are the only reason I'm still working this job while paying my way through college. If you don't have great coworkers, you will hate this job.

    Cons

    Disrespectful customers are the absolute worst. They are the main con of working at this job.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to copy every other company's ideas and create your own like roll up the rim. Everything else is taken from other companies like the rewards cards, the new sandwich boxes, and a lot of the breakfast in general. I stopped by a dunkin' donuts and saw that they have almost the same things we do, just named differently. I suggest coming up with things that stick instead of items that are driven by advertising alone and when the advertising dries up, the particular item is forgotten about.

    The time flies by because once you clock in, you work as hard as you can until your shift is over.

    Cons

    Management expects you to pick things up in a couple days. It takes a few weeks to learn the drinks

    Pros

    Low wages and no benefits, what more could you ask for! After I pay my bills there is no money left for food, one less worry. Soon we can all work in the service industry. I love everything about the service industry except the people! If you like donuts this is the job for you or you could become a cop. The police get free coffee and donuts, can't expect them to pay, they only make a $100,000 a year. All pumped up on sugar, lets go taser somebody. Bookem Dano!!!

    Cons

    I'm lovin it!!! Sorry wrong company.

    Advice to Management

    Fire me, please!!!

    Pros

    the manager I had gave me a set schedule, time off when I had health problems and the workload was fairly light

    Cons

    I offered to help out when staff was short for overnights and was never taken off them- there was no discussion of being put back on my regular shift. The overnighters were also told at one point they were not allowed to have phones on them which is a safety issue when going to an outside freezer at night alone.

    Advice to Management

    appreciate overnighters more, find harder workers for second shift
