    I worked at Einstein Bros. Bagels part-time

    Pros

    On campus, friendly staff, understanding customers, decent hours and free bagels

    Cons

    No proper training, the manager kept putting it off and would leave me to take orders. Hard to do when I don't know how to do half of the tasks and was the only one working aside from the manager and maybe someone else busy taking care of catering orders.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your employees are trained and don't leave new employees on the line alone.
