    Great First Job

    Former Employee - Team Leader in Statesboro, GA (US)

    I worked at Einstein Bros. Bagels part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Loved being able to help the customers and although it was very busy most of the time due to the proximity of the restaurant to the university, it was alot of fun to work with everyone.

    Cons

    The space issue was pretty bad for our restaurant, as well as the long lunch lines and college schedules of most of the workers slowed things down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have better transitions for shifts so customers don't suffer

    I have been working at Einstein Bros. Bagels full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fresh-hot, quality bagels, schmear & coffee! With a good discount, darn good even.
    Merit based advancement to mangement level.
    Regular Guests.
    Free Wi-Fi in most locations.

    Cons

    Unclear company direction: halting rollouts part-way through, fast food or good food fast?
    "Culture of waste" - ever changing POP, daily product waste, halted rollouts - it adds up.
    Decrease in employee benifits over recent years.
    Coupons - why devalue your product?
    Below industry standard pay for longs days (10-12 hrs)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    *Focus on the core of your product base: Bagels & schmear, egg sandwiches and coffee. Wraps, salads, thins, poppers, catering with delivery, online catering, an endless line of new sandwiches/ salads... Compare the small, simple menus of highly successful upcoming food enterprises to the costly, high-inventory, expansive menu of Einsteins.
    *Don't fall prey to every sales representative trying to sell you something to fix what's not broken. *Harken back to the days when the company was still private; have variety in bagels/ cream cheese/ coffee not everything but?
