  2. "Working for Noah's Bagels"

    I have been working at Noah's Bagels part-time

    Pros

    They hire you on the spot, so if you are in serious need of a job that not only pays you, but also teaches you skills and give you experience, this is the place to apply for. You also do multiple tasks, not focused on one station, so that you become more flexible and better help the store.

    Cons

    The store is pretty small and can be difficult to maneuver around with a full staff on the line. Also, sometimes, some staff simply don't show up on their assigned work schedule and you could be called to work on your off day. So prepare ahead of time and let the manager know know what day you couldn't be at work for a specific reason, like religious practice, planned vacation, appointments, and so on.

    Advice to Management

    I genuinely don't have any advice. I can't critique how a manager should improve since I've never been in their shoes before. Even if some of their actions were "questionable" they still are the manager and their main focus is to maintain the business and its integrity.

    I worked at Noah's Bagels part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy to get a job, 1 free bagel per day, restaurants regularly close ~3pm so no late hours, relatively flexible with hours

    Cons

    No free meals, low pay with no tips, early morning hours, open on holidays so don't expect days off on holidays

    Advice to Management

    Should have a donation program for left over bagels each day and hire more workers at a time to lighten early morning workloads on some workers over others

    I worked at Noah's Bagels full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The pay was decent for what was expected and the autonomy was nice at times.

    Cons

    Management, Management, Management. Too much politics and not enough promotion of talented people.

    Advice to Management

    Take notice of the talent that is on the team and embrace it. Too many good people moved on to other things because they felt no support or were overwhelmed by insane demands. People don't leave a company, they leave management.

    Pros

    Great hours, no late nights and as many or as few as you want. Good people around you, get to make lots of friends. The work itself is not hard at all, its a bagel shop.

    Cons

    Low pay, 1-2 dollars lower in every position compared to companies in the same shopping center. Incredibly high turnover, only worked for about a year and a half and was there longer then 98 percent of people.
