    Former Employee - Barista Costa Coffee in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Costa Coffee part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours available, training and support given throughout employment, free coffee and food whilst working and good discounts when not.

    Cons

    Pay is not great and does not depend on the regional location of the store, so someone working in the north of England will get the same as someone working in central london also do not get paid for breaks are entitled to them during shifts but if the store is busy which is often you do not have time to take your break

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe employ more staff per shift and give longer in the evening for cleaning as this can take some time if you want the job done properly but great training provided via company handbooks
