    Pros

    Good pay Free doughnuts The speed of work depends on traffic in-store and then it is dependent on the speed of the machine because you can't be rushing doughnuts out.

    Cons

    Some of the managers were really lazy and would not do anything Never received proper training, so I had kept asking for help everytime I had to do something new Fundraising orders from schools take a long time to finish because of the large quantity. This typically happens to the morning shift
