    I worked at Sprinkles Cupcakes part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free cupcake a day, get to be around delicious baked goods, a happy environment.

    Cons

    Did not train well or really at all, management liked to sit and chat in the back room while the cupcake associates busted their butts to fill orders

    Advice to Management

    Actually have your new hires complete the online training, I only did two modules. Also, help your cupcake associates when the line gets to be out the door.

    I arrived 5 minutes early, I was informed the person I was supposed to be interviewed by was on her vacation - so I was interviewed by another team member. We sat outside, she asked me several questions.
