Typical day during a busy time is very fast paced and hectic. Hard work at first but you pick it up after a week or two. Although you get great experience in food processing role you kind of feel that managers have no concern for you if your a casual worker. Turn over of employees is high due to their intake of casual employees for promotional periods. Not a stable job unless they offer you a permanent role. Some managers are rude and have no work ethic but a few really make your shift great. Other than that the staff there are awesome. Would recommend working afternoon shift, awesome staff on afternoon shifts. Most enjoyable part of the day is the people you work beside and of course the free doughnuts!

My experience at Krispy Kreme so far has been excellent. The management, the staff, the surrounding has always been like a family. Nevertheless, they treat you well and equal at work.

Low paying job where you are in heated conditions and have to wear long pants and black clothes. They KPI that have to be adheard to but dnt care about the overall look of the products.

Friendly management is good in there and the difficulty is one country worker much so feeling little bit pushing by them. They have unity in there so if we say no when they say something they angry. But overal staff are good. Thanks

A typical day at work would be really fast paced enabling ourselves to multitask. I have learned extra ordiary customer skills, time management, team work etc from this workplace. The most enjoyable part of the job would be able to work with the friendly team.
Pros
Free donuts
Cons
Nothing

Typical day at work is quite fast paced and busy.
Management is okay, but sometimes unyielding to personal issues when you need to take days off i.e. for mental health issues or family commitments. This leads to me having to take "sick" days that eat into my annual leave a lot.


The team members that are coworkers are the best part of the job. The workplace environment is great for the most part as mostly everyone is welcoming and does their bit to help each other out.


Hardest part of the job are the rude customers who expect speedy service especially during rush hours in the store, and will complain about swapping or exchanging doughnuts when it's against our store policy. It gets tiring when you are rostered on for 5 days in a row, mentally and physically. It is a physically strenuous job as you need to pack orders, make coffee, clean the dining floor, the toilets, and work area, take out the garbage, and move boxes and other inventory around.


I've learned how to steam milk and pour coffee, as well as assert myself in a workplace environment. For all its bad points, it has improved my confidence in talking to people and in my own skills.
Pros
Free doughnuts every shift
Cons
long hours, bad customers aplenty

Everyday was a new day. The customers are always lovely and easy to work with. I learned a lot whilst working at Krispy Kreme such as furthering my time management and customer service.

You do tend to get regular customer everyday and it makes me happy because you grow connections within those interactions. I never had bad moments whilst working at Krispy Kreme because i knew that i'd enjoy it; especially when you have peers that you get along with.
Pros
Free donuts/ 50 % off food
Cons
N/a

Krispy Kreme taught me on how to be a good and responsible person. Its nice to work there as a team member as they are appreciating your hardwork by giving awards and certificate of appreciation.

An average day at work consists of many quiet periods and time, and few busy moments, but when it is busy it gets really busy. The people who work there are very nice but are a majority caucasian with few asians. Management is still learning the ropes as it is a new store, but everyday activities have become streamline and efficient.

Generally a positive experience, all around. As long as you don't slack off you can have fun and enjoy yourself. It's a really good work environment, I get to work with my friends everyday. Sometimes it feels as if we arent at work because its just that fun. Customers can be difficult sometimes but thats standard.

The only criticism I have is penny pinching can be an issue. Years old equipment in need of replacement/fixing will be ignored as long as it can get the job done.
Pros
Great atmosphere, fun employees, willing to be flexible to your life circumstances.
Cons
Penny pinching can be an issue
