    Pros

    The management are great people to work under. They understand when problems arise, they as well as your co-workers in general are very helpful. It's like family.

    Cons

    Depends on your personality. Some customers are rude, some co-workers aren't fun to be around, some people may be lazy while others are very hardworking.

    Advice to Management

    I do recommend you pay a little bit more attention to the tiny details. Some parts need improvement, all in all though, it's a wonderful place.

    I worked at Paradise Bakery & Café full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Did I mention free cookies? :-) The managers I worked with were intelligent, well organized, understanding, and willing to admit when they had made a mistake (like when one of them forgot that he had told me I could have a particular day off to go to my best friend's wedding). Most of my fellow employees were great to work with too, and even the few who were not weren't terrible, just not very responsible. The managers gave those two several chances to redeem themselves before firing them which I thought was pretty kind of them.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room to advance pay wise, but they pay a little above minimum wage so I still found it sufficient as a high school/college summer job.

    Great environment, great people and great food! I absolutely loved working here and wish I could go back!

    It is a little bit like working in high school is the only problem I had. There really is no escaping the young hires that they have.
