      No opinion of CEO

      I have been working at Krispy Kreme part-time

      Pros

      Easy job, the manager is very understand and really attentive which is a real shame cause everyone takes advantage of her kindness. As with every job the other employees vary.

      Cons

      Usually understaffed with many people either calling out or quitting w/o much notice. Mon-Thursday are boring w/ very few customers you'll be searching for things to do. Pay isn't anything to write home about, Repetative tasks, the drive thru speaker is AWFUL!!!

      Advice to Management

      Be attentive don't yell at the customers

      I worked at Krispy Kreme full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Friendly Staff/Co-workers (When I worked there) Doughnuts

      Cons

      In Ankeny IA, this is a rather terrible place to work. The doughnuts are good but the employee's behind the counter aren't treated like real people. I use to be an employee here for about 8 months or so and after been ignored, publicly humiliated in front of my co-workers, and the owner's dislike of convenient ideas to help run things smoothly, working here was a stress everyday. The owner doesn't work there often, or...

      Advice to Management

      Be kind to your staff and understand that they are people who need hours, a good wage, and understanding in moments as they are humans. Talk to them about their needs and then act upon it. They are not just pawns for you to walk all over. A company cannot exist without their employees.

        Managers don’t stick to the company’s morals/values. They pick favorites and talk behind everyone’s back. Management is unorganized and irresponsible.

        I have been working at Krispy Kreme part-time for more than a year

        Pros

        * Flexible schedule * Nice (for the most part) people * Decent pay

        Cons

        * Management tends to not know what they're doing * Training is very haphazard

        Advice to Management

        Send your store managers to some basic "How to motivate, rather than de-motivate, your employees" classes. Especially teach them that talking down a co-worker in front of another is a sure way to make that person wonder what is being said behind their back.
