    I have been working at Saxbys part-time

    Pros

    Customer service experience, free coffee, exposure to a unique hospitality-oriented business model

    Cons

    Not amazing pay, not always great follow-through from headquarters (I've had training sessions cancelled out of the blue and email responses are usually slow), a more strenuous hiring process for the low pay you receive

    I have been working at Saxbys part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun work environment, opportunities to learn new skills

    Cons

    Low pay rate, small chance of progress and development, very corporate for a “local” coffee chain

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees more and treat them better, higher pay rates would be nice. A livable wage would benefit everyone.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Free coffee, flexible schedule, nice co-workers. I cannot think of any other pros. I worked very hard for this company and rarely saw any appreciation for it.

    Cons

    Low pay, not enough opportunity for advancement. Poor communication. Poor benefits. Nepotism was widespread throughout the company.

    Advice to Management

    Offer better benefits, perhaps incentives. Organization at the lower levels. Avoid nepotism. Listen to your employees. Do not put your relatives in charge.
