Krispy Kreme treat their workers like slaves and underpay staff
Team Member (Current Employee) – Loganholme QLD – 6 May 2019
Paid below the minimum award- no afternoon penalty rates, no penalty rates for Saturdays, only 35% loading on Sundays, no annual leave loading. No minimum work hours for permanent part time workers, insecure jobs! And this is only the beginning! Sometimes made to work more than 6 hours without a break, or no break at all and no compensation for it. Constantly being called into work as poor management under staff the rosters and don't account for errors. Management have favourites and like to gossip, very unprofessional environment to work in. Most of the management team are clueless and were hired because they're friends with the big boss. Expected to put in your best efforts all day everyday while favourites get away with chatting their shifts away and putting everyone else behind. Shifts changed with little to no notice, often left a voicemail saying you must start earlier or later. I could go on and on
6 free doughnuts per shift
Long hours, no penalty rates, company knows they are ripping us off but get away with it by having a work choices era EBA

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.
