    I worked at Saxbys part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - If you like fast paced then you will probably like it here. I made great friends with my employees and working at a coffee place can be fun. - free drinks when you are on the job - 50% off food when working and 10% off when not working - the chocolate croissants are bomb

    Cons

    - the pay is very low. I started off with 7.25. After 4 years and a promotion later I was making 9. When I was working at Starbucks in a similar area I started off with $10....in 6months I could have gotten a raise. - I don't know if corporate really has a concise strategic plan as to how they will grow. They may have a vision, but their methodology is pretty opposite of what it should be. - employees don't care about...

    Advice to Management

    You should be taking a look at upper management. Perhaps you hire them because you can pay them low salaries, but your getting the bottom of the barrell. If you had those who were skilled and knowledgeable in the business you'd be able to turn over a profit.

    I enjoyed the intimate atmosphere. Maybe better perks. I started out getting one free drink per shift, that was quickly changed to none.
