    I have been working at Einstein Bros. Bagels part-time (More than 3 years)

    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...
