Suggestions for improvement

  • LISTEN to employees. Respond to their needs

What I like about the company

It is a fun and easy job for the most part.

What I dislike about the company

Managers are abusive toward employees and when it is reported the company does nothing about it. Krspy Kreme needs a training program for managers to learn whAt is appropriate behavior towards employees and a zero tolerance for abusive managers

Company Culture

I LOVED working here! The pay was great for the area, offered benefits and incinitives.

Suggestions for improvement

  • There's plenty you could change, for instance try having a balance of respect in the workplace. Too many situations were often brushed off or moved to the side, which always led to more problems. Communication is something the company lacks, always thin

What I like about the company

Always came in ready for the day in anticipation for what could come of the long night shift. Worked with an amazing team that I miss dearly. Loved having coffee and doughnuts at my fingertips although you do get sick of them after awhile.

What I dislike about the company

EQUPIMENT EQUPIMENT EQUIPMENT!!!! Need to have more regular check ups on machines so avoid as many injuries as there was.

Support from management

Management is terrible. There is so much underhanded things going on They try and play people against each other and lie and say they didnt say thing but when the truth comes out they look crazy. They are lazy and all about themselves and dont even want to help the "team".

Teamwork

There is no team work. Everyone is basically cut throat and because you work on a commission pay rate of the entire team if someone doesnt pull their weight or miss customers essentially they are messing with your money

Internal Communication

The communication is virtually non existent. Very secretive

Gender Equality

Women are not paid as much as the men even if they have more experience.

Office / Work Environment

The trucks are terrible. They need to invest more money into the vehicles and the carts.

Environmental Friendliness

The racial tension is high. You can see the split right down the middle and management doesnt help the situation either.

Work-Life Balance

Pretty flexible with requesting time off

Suggestions for improvement

  • They should promote people who deserve it and not because they are yes men. Some of the people work hard and some dont and the pay should reflect that.

Company Culture

Very protective, as well as proud of the brand

Support from management

See previous response

Teamwork

Sales Reps I oversaw worked as great team

Freedom to work independently

Great opportunities for expansion would easily be overlooked to simply operate as we had for past 75 years

Internal Communication

Communication from VP, to DM, to Sales Mngr/ Sales Super gets lost through chain of command

Gender Equality

Healthy mix

Attitude towards older colleagues

Senior colleagues, as long as they can perform within their outlined role is appreciated

Career Development

After working as a Route Sales Rep for approximately 2.5 years- was asked to step into the next level, then again into management roles

Overall compensation for your work

Compensated well for my position, with an adequate bonus structure

Office / Work Environment

Terribly cramped sales office,shared by Sales Manager and Sales Supervisor

Environmental Friendliness

Recycling, repurpose, and re-used items, when the option should be exercised could be improved

Work-Life Balance

Basically could be called on at anytime due to a production breakdown- which would directly impact our wholesale side

Company Image

As I previously stated KK is VERY PROTECTIVE OF THE BRAND/ public perception

Job Security

Stable

Handicapped Accessibility

Somewhat

Workplace Safety

Route Sales, and Production are within the same building....so accidents are unavoidable occasionally

Challenging Work

With lots of variables everyday that directly impact your division (Wholesale -VS- Retail) stressful situations can arise, if you allow them to “get to you “

Inclusive / Diverse

See previous

Suggestions for improvement

  • Complete separation of Wholesale Division and Retail/Production

What I like about the company

I have yet to meet anyone who doesn’t smile when you tell them what you do, or where you work- folks always have great stories about their KK experiences throughout their life

What I dislike about the company
