    Not too good. On your first day they go over everything very fast and then you're just thrown into it. It's more of a learn as you go process.

    The person who trained me was a friend and so that is the only reason it was decent

    Trainer(s) were impatient and very "Inconsistent". One trainer would tell you one thing and another would tell you something entirely different. I noticed the trainer(s)/manager(s) would constantly being using an elevated voice tone when the trainees where wrong. It was overall horrible experience.

    E-learnings is the way the company "teaches" you how things work. There is barely any hands-on training and if you mess up, they use that against you because "you should have known" since you listening to a video about two minutes explaining it.

    Training is poor. You watch videos and get a little training in person.

    Most of the training is done by "e-learning" on a computer, then hands-on experience afterwards. The e-learning hardly prepares you for the hands-on though, as you usually train during peak business hours.

    Cafe needs to run more training because we are ALWAYS understaffed for no reason. The company is so focused on saving money that they underpay the understaffed team in their day-to-day basis

    Pretty thorough and decent number of days of training

    Training experience depends on who the trainer is. Most trainers are wonderful, others do not really care about training. All training is first assigned on e-Learning computer, where Baguette University will teach you about the position you are performing that day (dining room, register, sandwich, etc). Once e-Learning is completed, trainee will work hip-to-hip with their trainer. Once training on that position is completed, trainer will fill out POF forms and determine whether the trainee passes or fails their shift. Failing will NOT result in termination, but rather offer advice to trainee on things to improve on for their next shift.

    The Trainer is side tracked and just kind of throws you to the wolves.
