Manager (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – April 3, 2017
A nice company for a young restaurant manager looking to build a resume. The pay is ok for a single person. Not much in the way of salary increases either. I thought some of the operational standards were unrealistic.

Corner Bakery is a restaurant that is always busy. A typical day to work there would be setting up displays, heating all the soups, prepping for lunch rushes, cleaning and sanitizing, checking temperatures and making sure no food is expired.

the workers are great but management is horrible. the work is inconsistent and you don,t get paid enough money to really be able to cover your bills. they will say your full time and only give you part time hours.
The worst place I have ever worked due to management.
Cook (Former Employee) – Fountain Valley, CA – June 17, 2018
Terrible, terrible management! No one manager was ever on the same page as another and there was far too many of them. They would lie to keep people from quitting and they would never hire new people. We were constantly understaffed, yet having our hours cut.. how does that even happen at the same time?? No employee was happy who I worked with and again all due to management. I strongly suggest thinking twice before applying or taking a job at the Fountain Valley, ca corner bakery location.

The management is constantly disrespectful and disregarding of needs. They treat employees with no respect.The people you work with are mostly nice but as soon as you make a mistake, they won't take a second to throw you under the bus. It's every man for themselves.

Corner Bakery Cafe is an polite and welcoming Employer with flexible hours and outstanding management. They will make sure you are properly trained in any position you are willing to learn/work. Everyone in the Corner Bakery family is very friendly and always full of energy. A great place for a Highshool/College student to start as a first job or to get some extra cash.
Productive and competitive workplace that could have used better management
CASHIER/SERVER/EXPO (Former Employee) – Fountain Valley, CA – June 13, 2018
I learned a lot working at Corner Bakery Cafe including important customer service skills and team work. The employees needed to rely on team work to handle thousands of orders a day and a lot of the time we were understaffed so team work was essential to get things done. It was a good experience and I ended up leaving because after a year I was not getting enough work hours during the week because other employees had seniority over me and demanded more hours.
Customer service practice, team environment, and an understanding of the value of working beyond routine skills
Poor management, poor scheduling, and disogranization
Cashier (Former Employee) – Tysons galleria – June 12, 2018
the general manager was a little creepy but other than that it was a very fun nice place to work and all the people there were amazing, they did a good job at switching up and letting you move around so if you were a cashier you didn't get antsy
Always busy and the employees are rude to the customers.
Cashier/Customer Service/Server (Former Employee) – Rancho Cucamonga, CA – June 8, 2018
It was great working here for the work experience, however, the people I worked with were always negative and not polite to customers. The management was very unorganized and I felt they weren’t the “professional” that I want to work for.
Manager Assistant (Current Employee) – Chino Hills, CA – June 7, 2018
management is disorganized during hours of operation. It a fast paced customer service job, can be stressful when management is nonchalant during peak hours. the hardest part of the job is to try to be in all places at once.
a work day at corner bakery is usually very busy until after 12pm that is when the lunch is over and the customer traffic dies down and you have time to get other things done that are needed around the store that couldn't be done while customers were there.
Server (Former Employee) – Boca Raton, FL – May 29, 2018
Corner Bakery is a great opportunity for workers to interact with the general public and how to cater to their needs. The job teaches workers to be disciplined, patient, and resourceful and how they can respect any individual who enters the cafe. As a server, I was able to learn about the various food items on menu and how they should be prepared. After I served the food, I asked if they would like any additional items such as extra plates, silverware, dressing on the side, and brought the order back to the kitchen if the dish was not prepared the way it was ordered. I also discussed about various topics such as education, movies, sports, music, and life, in general with customers. I provided any accommodations such as high chairs for infants, lowered the blinds, and pushed tables together for large families. The workers are also able to request a day off with a two-week notice and they can switch shifts each other pending approval from the manager. Overall, Corner Bakery is a good place to work and the managers can allow a flexible schedule especially if workers also attend school.
chef during summer break (Former Employee) – North Brunswick, NJ – May 25, 2018
Corner Bakery was the first job that showed me how important a good manager was. I would open or close the restaurant and we were severely understaffed. My General Manager Chase was great and was the reason a lot of us stayed. Owners refused to fix things in the kitchen, hire new workers, or even give raises that were promised to those that picked up the slack. Thankfully our General Manager really cared about us and would hop onto the line and help us cook.
Rewarding to cook
Bad Owners, Didn't give promised raises, Understaffed
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) – El Paso, TX – May 24, 2018
Your work is under appreciated and will never give you raises regardless of how much you know of the job. Food is amazing, cleanliness is great. But employees are not treated the way they are supposed to be
