Good job :)
Nice place to work, a shame they don’t pay much (minimum wage). Get lots of free donuts and drinks and lovely management. I enjoyed it there, just needed higher pay

It is okay
Easy job but poor management. You get free doughnuts though which is always nice. It becomes repetitive but for the salary it is decent enough I would say

Ok job if it's temporary
In my time working for Krispy Kreme I tried for years to move up and eventually got the role of shift leader but only by doing insane amounts of overtime, extra shifts and playing the role of shift leader for nearly 2 years on the same pay as a team member. There was constant staffing issues because no one wanted to be there as it was such a toxic environment, management made you feel so guilty if you said no to being asked to do an extra shift. Management constantly belittling you and never back you up even if a customer is kicking off.Only perks were you occasionally get free coffee and doughnuts and some of the people working there were lovely.

Avoid at all costs
The most toxic workplace that I have ever experienced. Massive turnover of staff isn’t surprising, the staff that have been there for years are not welcoming at all - there is a lot of bullying in the workplace that is overlooked. There is a big divide between the retail department and the factory which is absolutely ridiculous. Management is very corrupt and there is no duty of care to the employees well being. The staff are very lazy and spend most of there time talking about other staff and being unpleasant about one another. It is very cliquey which again is not nice. Managers and shift leaders will swear and scream at staff and think that is an acceptable way to conduct themselves - it’s shameful really, no matter how many complaints get put in, nobody cares enough to change it. It’s very long hours and the pay isn’t worth it given the environment you have to put up with.

Horrible and unpaid labour
Extremely terrible place to work, unsafe, unfair pay, stupid employees.NO BENEFITS, eg bank holidays and festive periods and over time has no extra pay. Shifts can be cancelled out of no where due to the small hour contracts they do even if you are part time you will be on a 5 hour contact. Long Hours , busy and not worth all the bosh aches.

Interview questions

Depending on what branch you have your interview at, it is typically very relaxed and the manager should make you feel at ease. My interview was around 30 minutes long, they got through the formal questions sent from head office. You'll be asked questions about your 3 biggest strengths/weaknesses, expressing ideas, why are you suitable for the job, do you have experience dealing with difficult customers etc. Just answer the questions with honesty and be confident with your body language and speaking. You should also ask them some questions at the end too as it shows that you have interest in the company. It will also let you know if that branch is a good fit for you or not. If you are successful with your interview then you will be invited for a trial shift. (That's how my experience went).

All thei needed to know about me

Shared on 4 September 2017

The emphasis on interviews for Krispy Kreme are on you, as a person. You need to come across as sociable, friendly and motivated. I was asked if there was a particular type of person I don't get along with, if I have any experience selling particular products and if I enjoy working as part of a team. Customer service and team work are the most important factors.
