I worked at Thorntons (Kentucky) full-time (Less than a year)
Great Hours, Great Pay, Good Benefits On The Job.
Super Short Breaks For The Ppl Who Dont Smoke 30 Cigs A Day! Management Gave Ppl Who Were Lazy Advantages Over Hardworking Employees Because Of Personal Friendships/Relationships. The Ppl That Work The Hardest Get Taken Advantage Of And Get Little To No Recognition.
Advice to Management
Hire Ppl That Actually Want To Work And Not Stand At The Register All Day And Complainin And Allow The Store To Look A Mess. Also, Give Ppl The Job Who Actually Fit The Job Description Because A lot Of Ppl They Hire Are Rude, Lazy, Unprofessional And Act Like They Don’t Know What They Are Doing Due To Poor Training And Poor Education Levels. Also, The Company As A Whole Needs To Stop Wasting So Much Food(It’s Sad)!
