    I worked at Wetzel's Pretzels part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I actually liked making pretzels and the cashier part was easy. There really wasn't much to do at closing time either.

    Cons

    The boss. Instead of coming in and working with us she would watch us over an app on her phone. She never gave nice advice. She always yelled. Instead of telling us what to do she would just tell us move. One day she cut my hours and I had to quit through another employee because she stopped answering my phone calls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The manager needs to learn how to deal with employees better so she doesn't go through new employees ever other month.

    Pros

    The employees are really nice. It's a wonderful place to get lots of experience especially in running a store. It's really nothing hard about working there. Everything is pretty much hands on which is great.

    Cons

    It gets really busy and there's not much time for break. Break is over just like that. And you have to share tips.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They could pay more. I mean it is demanding working there.
