    I have been working at Baker's full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pro is that it is close to home

    Cons

    Hours that are recommended for department managers are not work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    When you say you will help with problems in the store. You stick to it, actions are louder then words

  3. "No upward movement"

    I have been working at Baker's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee discount
    Friendly staff (if they're at the same level as you)
    Cross training
    Paid holidays

    Cons

    Store management does not care about you or your concerns, it doesn't matter how hard you try, only how long you've been there.
    They will make you work holidays there is no avoiding them

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at how hard some people work because if they're not getting recognized and they see it doesn't make a difference how hard they work, they won't try.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Baker's full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers are friendly and benefits are the bomb

    Cons

    The upper management needs an entire overhaul! I love my job and I love Baker's but the upper store managers make it incredibly difficult to you do your job 80% of the time


  5. "Flexible Schedule, but lousy management and low pay"

    I have been working at Baker's part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    As a college student, I got the steady hours I needed while continuing my education. Managers will also tend to notice those who work hard and are good at their jobs, giving large room to advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Low pay for having being responsible for thousands of dollars each day. (Most people in department have multiple jobs) Management will blame the lowest supervisors for the department's low scores while not doing all in their power to hire enough people to run the department or even schedule enough for a store to work properly during the day. Because those who are hardworking can be paid more elsewhere, most of those who are promoted to department managers are pretty lousy.

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough people. Pay them a livable wage. Finish background checks before letting them work.

    Cons

    Way too high expectations for short time allowed per each assignment. (especially if you work according to the Health Laws! )
    Don't believe "pay according to experience" during an interview !!

    Advice to Management

    Some "learning management," shouldn't ....
    No communication or people skills.
