    I have been working at Krispy Kreme full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is pretty good if you don't mind actually earning it, free donuts (a dozen per week- anything after that is half off), some coworkers are great.

    Cons

    Mechanical issues almost every night due to aging equipment, management doesn't get along but pretends to, understaffed busy nights yet overstaffed on slow nights, ordering issues for ingredients (either too much or too little for seasonal cake flavors).

    Advice to Management

    Make sure new hires are serious about showing up for shifts, schedule at least two reliable people on busy nights

    Pros

    Its easy work, and sometimes tedious, but fair pay.

    Cons

    Early hours which can cause inconveniences. Hard to get time off.

    Advice to Management

    A more strenuous focus on team building could help keep employees around. There is something of an air of every man for himself, though we are supposed to be encouraging each other to drive sales.
