    I have been working at Peet's full-time (more than 3 years)


    Good and affordable benefits for part-time and full-time retail associates, Most stores have maintained a positive and conducive work environment, the coffee discount is awesome, they try to promote from within whenever possible.


    A lot of the employees are really immature, customers can be very rude and snooty, pay is pretty sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people a living wage, noone in the bay area can get an apartment with an hourly wage less than 15.

    They had a job fair that was posted on Craigslist. Walked in and filled out an application. Got a on the spot job interview by one of the managers. The interview was pretty relaxed and pretty straight forward. The manager liked my personality. I was told I would get a call back for a second interview since they were going to open another store.
