    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.

    Advice to Management

    None, fantastic job running everything!
