    I have been working at Einstein Bros. Bagels full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work in a fun environment where customer services meets with the passion of making our clients happy with great food.
    • Team Member: 45% of my duties are as follows: All (8) eight tabletop/dining area is clean; condiments, ice. I assist with our customers and offer refills. In the kitchen I help prepare, asset in cooking, hand pour OJ, parfait yogurt, lemonade.
    • Runner: 65% of my job is keeping the “Grab-N-Go” front refrigerator full; Cream cheese, hand poured OJ revolving necessity need.

    Cons

    Would love more work hours.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize the front refridgerator! Its a grab-N-GO... Box! I would like more hours to keep it stocked. I think in the am if its stocked more theirs opportunity to make more $$money$$ for mid morning and afternoon snacks!

    I worked at Einstein Bros. Bagels full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

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

    Pros

    Easy to work for because they care about their employees and how they interact with customers. They are great at making sure every employee gets a meal break, gets their desired work hours and works around needed schedule requests.

    Cons

    Management at my particular store were not very strict when it came to employee relationships. Many issues occur between employees that caused stress and discomfort every day.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to how employees interact and intervene when someone is being bullied or sexualized by another employee.
