bagger (Former Employee) – Wooster, OH – November 30, 2018
coworkers were amazing! minus some managers. loading groceries is tough and demanding physically. couldn’t advance within the company though usually days were very busy, especially the weekends and some evenings. some managers are tough to work with, such as asking off for days. most of mine got flat out denied or they were promised, then they would take the days away from me and add on a few more in a row.
Line Cook (Current Employee) – Ashland, OH – November 2, 2018
I've been with the company for 2 years and not only do they lie about offering full time but they also place blame on their employees for lack of revenue. Our most recent New hire was told that after so long you could be offered full time but at the same time refuse to offer another position. We currently have one full time line cook and the rest of us are forced to work full time hours on part time pay scale. To add insult to injury they also drastically cut your hours at the end of the year if you've worked over to save themselves money and for those of us who didn't have a choice because of there not being enough employees to cover shifts they just say owell and good luck. At least my direct manager tries to help since corporate doesn't care as long as they make money.
Balances well with outside schedules, but poor management
Barista/Cashier (Current Employee) – Canton, OH – September 27, 2018
A typical day at work is quite easy, although they add work from other departments not in your job description that you will not get paid for. I learned the basics of the career of my choice, however employees (at my specific location) were hostile and management did nothing except say "move on" while the hostile employees continued with their hostility (at times, hostility was physical).
Barista (Former Employee) – Ashland, OH – September 14, 2018
I loved being a barista at Buehler's. However, I went though 3 department managers and 2 of which made sure we knew they did not like the coffee shop and the baristas. The barista was pretty much completly ran by us baristas which made it more relaxed. You are the only one working on your shift which could be hectic in the morning, but also made it unique. I did get pregnant while I was there and while the other employees were very nice about it, I was still told I had to carry my 4 gallons of milk every night by myself, I was not allowed to sit down in my off time, and was not given any breaks of any kind. Usually the breaks and stuff didn't bother me, but when I left for maternity leave they hired a temporary replacement for me. When I came back they said that all my hours are with the replacement and that I should go find another job for the time being.
I have worked for Buehlers 10 years . I worked and left to raise my family . And went back . Have always enjoyed working with people . I have advanced . And have worked in several areas . They allow for learning and growth .

Nice employees, Always gave paid breaks, gave lunches passed 7 hours, Clean. The hardest part, at least for me, was requesting any day off in advanced because all of that online. I'm not great with computers.
Janitor (Former Employee) – Coshocton County, OH – July 4, 2018
Worst place ever don't work here Showed up did my job. Fired for no reason! And the boss or should i say ssob Is a witch! Promised me three days to cover for co-worker. Then take all my days away and fire me for no apparent reason. I would not recommend this job to anyone. I will never set foot back in their store. Neither will any of my family or friends.
This job is super flexible about hours and days being worked. If you are student or have never had a job before, this is a perfect place to start. It's not very difficult and there's plenty of communication and flexibility. However, pay isn't enough for a Fulltime job and not much advancement opportunities.
I worked for Buehlers for 5 years while I was in high school/ college. I was a cashier and then got moved to the bakery. The management was awful and didn't seem to care if people were stealing or calling off every shift. I think every time I went in someone was calling off. Everyone was very lazy. I was the only one that would do their job properly and only called off twice the whole time I worked there. I only got 2 pay raises and they were very small. The most I made was 9.75/hour. The bakery and deli were connected and I was eventually working in both departments. I for sure think I deserved a lot more than what I was getting paid. There was a lot of drama when I first started working there but once a certain manager got fired it was a lot better. The one good thing is that they are flexible with hours.
Bagger (Former Employee) – Wooster, OH – March 21, 2018
Beuhler's was perfect for me when I was in High School, and the management was fairly flexible and willing to work with me. I would have to say that the only reason we ever had to stop working together was because of me going to school in a separate place.
The job itself was great. Company empowers employees to move up and make decisions. More focused now on the ACE hardware part of the company. When Brunswick closed it didn't take employees view points on where to send people and demoted from full time to part time. Not a good company anymore. Some people really needed a full time position.
favoritsm, took full time away from employees when store closed.
Fast paced, learn to work on your own, advance your skills
Center Store Department Head, Midnight Supervisor (Current Employee) – Dover, OH – February 7, 2018
I enjoy working for Buehlers. Working midnights has one issue; if there was a serious issue or question at hand there may not be a qualified manager to answer that question. Other than that during the day you have plenty of well qualified individuals around to help the customer and or the employee. I learned and educated about receiving invoices, sensitive documents that need signed off on. Also qualified as a key holder to the store. The most enjoyable part was the company around me. The hardest part was taking on tasks that prove difficult or taking on a employee who was disgruntle. As well as if a problem arose it was my responsibility to adjust, undergo, and resolve the issue.
Benefits, stock option, paid time off
Pay increase wasn't frequent, sometimes there wasn't a member available to resolve issues
Manger at Bakery is horrible Manger. Hours low pay worse, co- workers steal the place blind. Dirty machines. Nothing is made in house anymore everything comes in pre-made pre-frozen and not made right.
I made a lot of really good friends. They are understanding about family emergency situations, such as kids being sick; your health; car trouble; etc. They provide excellent on the job training and excellent customer service. They are fairly good about recognizing when an employee or group of employees go above and beyond their roles.
triple reward points
have to be available to work evening shifts and weekends
