Featured Review

Current Employee - Sales Associate/Cashier

I have been working at Panera Bread part-time

Pros

This company was great for a college student.

Cons

This company did not have much room to advance.

Former Employee - Manager

I worked at The Cravings Group full-time for less than a year

Pros

Admittedly it was their brand/name that pulled me to their Company, but it just stops... TO.A.SCREECHING.HALT.

Cons

No need to put more in the Cons part here, as I would need to pick up a number now in the line. I am really surprised that at 2019, not a damn thing has changed since I was an employee there way... back. Obviously Management IS the Problem, as usual the COO. You know who and what you are.

Advice to Management

Well aside from telling them to stop burying reviews like these by making fake positive ones, they should probably cease hiring Managers if they are going to tell them what to do, down to the last... detail. But then again, that is expecting too much from one of the most disorganized and unprofessional Company I worked for. Correction, wasted my time for. As a consumer, I don’t even remember the last time I went to ANY of the establishments under their Group of Companies. I like telling jokes, but this is by far the biggest one I talked about in my life. This is just for the purpose of warning anyone of getting that call from their HR for an interview. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. TONS OF IT. I would highly recommend this Company... If you’re an evil person. COO is telling someone to create a fake Positive Review now in 5...4...3...2...1...Type! (Whip/s cracking)
