I worked at Corner Bakery Cafe part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

You get free drinks, half off food, even when you bring your family on off days. Since I was hired for a new store opening, I received great training. The hours go by fast if you work with a great crew. Most of the customers were awesome to interact with.

Cons

The managers often micro-managed, which is very annoying, it seems as though you have to work there forever for promotions.

Advice to Management

Stop the micro-managing and let people do their jobs. Have a clear career path for moving up in the company.

    Pros

    the pay is decent, anything over 40 hours is overtime, i averaged 50+ hours a week.

    Cons

    unless you have OPEN availability you will not get promoted. closing shifts are from 1130-10pm, which is your full day. The GM's have been there forever so promotions into that position are far and few. the AD's dont have a clue what goes on in the stores.

    Advice to Management

    invest the time into those who want to grow with the company, the people that have that passion and drive. those who are just "going through the motions" will end up burning you in the long run.


  2. "Great food!"
