    Pros

    I worked at Bruegger's part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Nice people to work with
    - Not too hard to keep motivated as long as your coworkers are nice
    - Decent hours to work, depends on experience though and how many different jobs you can do

    Cons

    - Hours for a baker can be a bit rough
    - The building that I was working at needed frequent repairs, though usually nothing too major

    Advice to Management

    Some of the safety equipment wasn't provided until after incidents had happened. Although I'm not sure how to rate this because it was due to a franchise that went bankrupt and had there were scandals about how the owner was taking money or something.
