    Pros

    Great team members. amazing guests and their loyalty to the brand. Solid managers who want to be successful.

    Struggling to find its voice.. Seems to be struggling and constantly changing it's focus so the team cannot be successful as they are constantly being swayed from one task to another.

    Be as loyal to your employees as they are. Do not make them feel disposable but important to the success of your organisation. Loyalty breeds loyalty.

    I worked at Bruegger's full-time

    Pros

    I liked working with all the team during the summer. I also liked the early morning hours because I could be home for my family in the evening most days.

    Cons

    Work became overwhelming once school started. I felt like I was being used and I was working way too many hours. I was exhausted all the time. They need to hire more regular people not just school kids, but they don't pay enough.

    Advice to Management

    Raise your pay so more people will apply and you can keep good workers. Also, quit changing all the stuff.
