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

    Pros

    Free doughnuts and the pay.

    Cons

    The company juat recently got bought out so a lot of change have happen since I've been with the company. Especially the changes with management. Not good changes either. Management doesn't appreciate the employees hard work.

    Advice to Management

    The communication could be better and all the unnecessary change need to stop. You're losing a lot of good employees because of upper management. A lot of ppl don't quit the job they quit the boss.

    I worked at Krispy Kreme part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -could work seasonal after beginning college
    -free donuts on the job
    -clean atmosphere to work in

    Cons

    -manager changed every year at my location, so any decisions the previous manager planned on making to better our building, was ignored by the next manager, therefore things didnt get done
    -our location didnt make the donuts
    -our location sometimes got stale donuts and yelling at our suppliers only helped for maybe 3 days of orders when we had to order donuts daily
    -standing up all day for terrible pay

    Advice to Management

    either give locations enough money to where they can budget for renovations as needed, especially if you're going to start taking away sections of the store since you're losing money from them, and have several managers working at each location instead of one since you cant manage to keep one there for long

    Customers always come in with happy expectations. There's nothing like hot coffee and donuts. Great opportunities to interact with customers.

    Look at your decisions from your employees
