      I have been working at Bowl of Heaven part-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Discount on pricey health food & drink It's a good product

      Cons

      Employees may exclude you which affects morale,progress,your success Managers smoke If you can't learn fast...ouch Only one cashier Store is understaffed You may not get training,work in every corner Temperamental employees/managers Customers can get impatient with slowness You are rushed from FOH to BOH with no others trading places

      Advice to Management

      Bubbers Bowls. Also don't display items customers will be frustrated to find are out of stock. Throw away fraying or non intact plastic or other prep items, it appears to be a hazard.

      Advice to Management

      Stop being so picky about little things in the restaurant & allow changes.

        I worked at Bowl of Heaven part-time for more than a year

        Pros

        The job itself is really easy and it tends to attract a lot of younger employees so the atmosphere is really chill because of the staff is usually around 16-20 yr olds.

        Cons

        Management across the board is terrible. Expect late paychecks, lots of running around for answers, and typically petty inconveniences by general managers and even the company's owners.

        Advice to Management

        Listen to employees. Seriously. If they come forward reporting something, take them seriously and be mature about it just once.

        I have been working at Bowl of Heaven part-time for less than a year

        Pros

        Bowls taste pretty good, some customers are kind. Theres not a lot of benefits to this job. Better off working somewhere else

        Cons

        Still expensive even with the discount, horrible management, rude coworkers, the owner is mentally unstable and constantly yells at employees

        Advice to Management

        Literally just quit. I dont even know how you could fix this mess

        I have been working at Bowl of Heaven part-time for more than a year

        Pros

        People you work with are very friendly and everyone gives off a warm and welcoming vibe. Job is fun at first...

        Cons

        Management is terrible. Pretty much take advantage of workers. The pay isn't great...$11 for doing working the register, making the bowls, making the juices and smoothies, prepping the ingredients, prepping backups for the ingredients, and constantly cleaning. I also feel bad for the shift leads who are getting paid only a dollar more than non shift leads.

        Advice to Management

        Treat workers better and increase pay rate
