Auntie Annes is a relatively good tasting snack stop, but working for this company was/is a nightmare.
Crew Member (Current Employee) – Sacramento, CA – September 23, 2016
I have worked for Auntie Anne's for 1 year and about two weeks going on three. I do not intend on staying here for very long. my first three months on the job I didn't work more than 1-2 days a week and slowly added up over time to 10-33 hours a week. depending on the mood of my manager of the time, and how she felt toward me determined my hours the following week. I was forced to clock out at a certain time when closing besides being finished or not. The new manager that is here now is funny and easy to work with. I haven't gotten scheduled more than 1 day a week in the month of August 2016-Sept. , I've made maybe $200 in one month. Maybe management is not the problem but a higher responsibility.
Not many aspects of this job were particularly challenging besides handling hold orders during busy times of the year. Holiday season gets very busy and crowded and many anxious impatient customers get upset, I was mostly responsible for greeting customers, getting their order ready,communicate with the roller for it to be prepared and cooked, then onto the buttering station to be glazed with butter, packaged and called the name of the customer waiting.
The most enjoyable part of working at Auntie Anne's has to be a few great customers, our reliable mall employee's, and most of all my staff. My fellow co-workers make a job day fun at times, we get the job done but we are always having fun. I love that the most.
I learned customer service the most at this job more than any other I have had. Cash register is where I learned conversation, how to handle emotionmore... and my facial expressions, and i also learned how to work quickly in a high demand environment. Organization and memory is key to getting a customer in and out happily and in a timely manner.less
management, unsteady hours, short staffed, labor cuts
Typical day includes standing around for hours repeating the same task for no reasons. I didn't learn anything here except that my hard work will always be taken for granted. Management was horrible, co workers were fine but no longer work there. The hardest part of the job was being able to withstand hours of nothing.
Short breaks, low pay, not appreciated but upper management
Great place to work for those with no work expirence

It is a very easy job, it will give you the hands on training you need for other jobs when you are ready to move on. The people you meet there are very warm and inviting. You must also grasp everything quickly or you won't be there very long. Overall a very good job for high school and college students.

The company was terrible corporate doesn't show up when expected to. Management in bad shape and doesn't cooperate with employees. Ownership of the store is bad as well the store is not properly taken care of contactor doesn't not repair any damages to the store and makes the work place unsafe.

You get the job nice company and management, but they schedule you only when needed not wheat your availability. I was asked in interview and told them he said perfect now I'm scheduled days I can't work so that's a problem. So make sure everything is clear before accepting job. Also was offered 10$ hr than after paperwork completed pray changed lower!!! What?! I was like wow ok let's just give it a go but now I'm hesitant because they only want me on Sat and Sunday. Not what was promised

I would work to close most days. During the day I had to ask each customer if they would like to try (name 2 drinks) or ask if they would like (name 2 dipping sauces). Before close we had to wash everything from top to bottom. Roled pretzels and buttered them after being put in the oven to cook until golden brown.

They are a great company to work for. Its great to come into a shift with positive people that are ready to work. The management is awesome. They always trying to help any situations you have to help. The hardest part would be dealing with rude customers. But all you can do I be positive and ignore the negativity.
Associate (Current Employee) – Langhorne, PA – August 29, 2016
Everyone is accepting and are always there with a helping hand. The most enjoyable part of the job is creating the pretzels and seeing the customers excitement when their pretzel is fresh from the oven.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Eastwood, mall – August 24, 2016
I worked there with expectations of having a permanent job. They let me go in about 3 weeks time saying it was only seasonal. Management is horrible you could be their best worker but if they don't like you you'll get fired. Very unprofessional.
Everyday was never a bore, you meet people from around the global on the daily. You also lean how to make pretzels in many ways, also the staff are really friendly and don't mind to help you when you ask for assistants.
