Enjoyable and productive job
Team Member - Part Time (Current Employee) –  Redditch, Worcestershire2 February 2018
Overall working at Greggs is a straight forward job baking, cleaning, serving and restocking inventory. It is a good job to have while studying at University or at school as they are flexible with their hours and listen to you.
Pros
50% discount and a lot of company benefits

Pays well, hard graft

Pay is good, discount good
Cons
Long, hard days

Not a good job.
Team member (Former Employee) –  Rosyth3 January 2018
Given that your contract is only 16 hours and they can drop your hours from 39 at any given time, I would seriously not recommend Greggs. I have worked here for a year and the amount of pressure the company puts on you is unrealistic.
Pros
50% discount
Cons

Stressful
Manager (Former Employee) –  Gloucestershire10 December 2017
Greggs is no longer a family firm they’re getting too big care about their people. They’re only interested in making money.
Longer and longer working hours. Staff shortages. Pressure to reach targets every day. Very stressful and hard working job. Be prepared to be on your feet 12+ hours a day.
Pros
Profit share. Discount
Cons
Long hours. Tiring. Stressful.

Busy work
Greggs Team Member (Former Employee) –  Huddersfield7 December 2017
Make sure, you know what you are signing up for because it's fast paced, and you rarely can make mistakes. The management has high expectations, and it's hard to make a position for yourself. However, it always depends on which shop you work at.
Pros
The salary
Cons

Cons
contract is not good, you do long hours and not enough breaks.
