    Pros

    The people I worked with were some of the nicest people I had the pleasure of meeting. Hours are manageable, room for pay increases.

    Cons

    Your location will depend on a manager. Often there were moments where supplies ran out. If your manager is on top of getting things stocked, the rest is pretty easy.

    Advice to Management

    Better train the managers.

    I have been working at Einstein Bros. Bagels full-time

    Pros

    Free coffee/soft drinks during shift.

    Cons

    I was recently moved from a customer service position to baker. I have yet to see the rate of baker, $11/hr. I am still expected to do the job of baker. I am expected to bake, do dishes, slack bagels for next day and unload the delivery for freezer. I am close to 58 years of age and have asked twice to go back to customer service position which i was hired for. I do not mind helping to put away the freezer as long as it is a 2 man lift. I have made the GM aware that i will not not put the freezer away myself. $10 an hour is not worth me having a heart attack or incurring an injury. The current GM, for the most part, spends their time cashing out people at the register.

    Advice to Management

    I have had contact with my GM's boss and her boss as well. They are very nice, reasonable women. They need to come into the store and observe behavior more often. I have 2 degrees and am doing this job for extra income. Please just be more aware.

    Pros

    The new owners of the company are good with raises vs the old owners. I really enjoyed baking for this company

    Cons

    Cross training of all employees needed to be handled in a more organized and professional manner. Couponscanner and incorrect bar codes was a hassle when dealing with promotional deals.

    Advice to Management

    Constructive criticism is important to a good team. Good communication amongst crew members helps keep the team working as a whole.

    Pros

    Literally the best place you could ever work for. The job itself is enjoyable because it gives you a chance to meet new people.
    They are extremely flexible when it comes to work scheduling. The corporate managers that come to the store for evaluation always make it a point to get to know us and hear our feedback on the improvements the company can make to benefit the workers as well as the customers.

    Cons

    I love this job. I have no cons.

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

    Pros

    I really admired each and every person I worked with here. There was never a dull moment at the downtown Tulsa location. Wasn't my first job, but it was my first good job.

    Cons

    I worked at the downtown Tulsa location.. All the companies around us let their employees out for lunch break at the same time, so there was always a crazy line at lunch, and half of the people waiting in line would get irritable quickly because the length of the line... So I had to deal with a lot of cranky customers while working here. They were very belittling at times, like nothing we did was good enough for them.

    Advice to Management

    Management::: Stay Strong!

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

    Pros

    I got paid and made friends...

    Cons

    Very early hours, especially for a college student
    Short staffed because of pay limitation, yet high work and labor demand
    Non-understanding managers

    Advice to Management

    High more people and give training for new hires. This is not a place that everyone can just learn on the job and pick it up very quickly.
