Featured Review

Former Employee - CSA - Customer Service Associate

I worked at Wawa part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Easy to move up on in rank, work is simple and can be fun. Make great friends and some managers are the best you’ll ever work with and treat you like a person/family. Great care packages

Cons

Depending on the store and managers, they can make you hate going in, cliques, start new people at higher rates after you get hired.

Advice to Management

Act more like a human being with understanding about people who are close to family and be more understanding to those with families and are close to their families. Emergencies happen. Stop hiring... kids who care more about being social than work.

Former Employee - Store Manager

I worked at La Madeleine full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

As a former Manager for 14 years with La Madeleine here in DFW area, I loved it, everyday was a challenging to get better, fast paste, you learn a lot as a manager. More support is available when... needed, constant training. It became my second family. Long hours though, with young family with kids, I had to take a pause a little bit. But I'll recommend anyone to apply and work for La Madeleine especially if you have a Management Experience.

Cons

Long hours, but worth it.

Advice to Management

As a manager, be ready to work, roll down your sleeves and work. You don't give orders, but you must be a team player, help your associates, maybe in the kitchen, cashiers, wash dishes when necessary..., clean tables when necessary, be ready to deal with customers by being pro-active and use the tools to help client. You never say NO to the customers, you make it happen.
