    I have been working at Peet's


    The work environment was high energy and ever busy. With fun coworkers and a wide customer base every day was unique. Easy to stand by products. Reasonable amount of training offered. Importance placed upon cleanliness and proper team interactions.


    There would be issues with receiving proper shipments and ensuring necessary inventory was in stock. Not always the best communication between higher level management and retail staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When making the choice to close a business more than a two day notice would be appreciated. Ensure there is a proper amount of staff to complete tasks.
