    I worked at Einstein Bros. Bagels part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The best part about working at Einstein Bros. Bagels is the flexibility of hours, the early hours, the change of environment when you are assigned catering orders, the regular customers, and the relationships between district managers and staff in their area.

    Cons

    Some of the cons of working at Einstein Bros. Bagels is how early they close and hoe abruptly prices change on specific items.

    Pros

    Choosing hours was no big deal

    Cons

    Bad management. They expected you to know things without keeping track of what you knew or didn't know. It made doing things frustrating because you end up doing things that can take hours because they never properly trained you BUT they will yell at you because you took hours to do something.

    Advice to Management

    Please train people better. That's all I asked. I ended up training someone a week in after starting because turn over is super high.

    Pros

    Depending on location you may get nice coworkers. It can be a good first job but not if you're still in school, since the restaurants close early you will only be able to work on weekends.

    Cons

    The company is very bad about benifits or raises. Not competitive pay at all. Not a lot of room to move up in the company. Not open for long so not a wide variety of hours to be able to work. A lot of coworkers that are unmotivated and not always the nicest people.

    Pros

    There were no pros at the end...

    Cons

    Waited so long to be part of the Einstein Bagel journey and in a year the dream job had completely burned me out. 60+ (12-2am to 12 - 3pm) hours weekly. Who cares if you're an hourly GM (@ 60 hrs) when you sleep a whole day just to feel human? On call 24/7, no joke, does not matter how hard you work, how much you try to help out the "sister" stores, you pass inspections, make labor, etc .... its NEVER praised or good enough.

    Can't get the "floating" GM to help in WA state... budget cuts, so surrounding GM's work extra to assist. No DM help, unless its that one hour once a month. No use in saying anything cause it didn't matter.

    Meeting with top ppl was a joke. Told by Regional to basically not make waves. Office computer dies 3 times and I'm questioned about why there's 26 pages of times adjustments.... really?

    I could go on, but I was sad and mad when leaving. Glad I'm out and feel for some of the good GM's I met still there.

    Advice to Management

    It doesn't matter what we say here, it won't change whether we are current or former GM's.

    Pros

    Pretty hard to get fired unless you clearly disobey management requests. Work goes from relaxed to busy with the intermissions between classes.

    Cons

    Most customers are pleasant but a few can always be unpleasant.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire a student who hardly speaks english to do register. They're going to struggle with names and taking orders...
