    I worked at Bruegger's part-time

    Pros

    The job is pleasant, making bagels and coffee and talking to customers.

    Cons

    Atmosphere is such that breaks are calculated by the second, there is no standing still on the job, and you are expected to hardly talk to other employees.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to relax occasionally. Create an environment that is less stressful, especially if you are going to pay the bare minimum.
