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

    Pros

    - Excellent experience working all departments from catering to coffee, etc
    - Always energetic mood at the store, with busy customers it was never slow.
    - Tips seemed to always make up for less than competitive pay.

    Cons

    - Having to be at work at 2am or 3am on some days did cut into my personal life, but that's kind of par for the course with a bagel shop.

    Advice to Management

    There isn't really any advice I can give since there seems to be a higher turnover of upper management compared to the actual store I worked at.

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

    Pros

    Most of the people were amazing! 50% off food, free bagels/bakery items if you closed, and hours were convenient. After being there a few months I was pretty much able to choose a set schedule of what days and hours I wanted to work. Overall a great first job option!

    Cons

    Train your new employees better! They are just thrown into the job and end up learning everything through experience instead of being taught first. Also be more picky on who you hire. Some of my coworkers were just not qualified for a fast paced , customer service based job.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be open on every single holiday, it's not fair to your employees and be more selective on your staff.
