Good Company but so much drama

Barista (Current Employee)

ProsThey are willing to let you have off for personal days and are very good at working around your other schedules.

ConsLots of drama. Give promotions to undeserving people. Would rather give a promotion to someone in the in crowd or someone that has no idea what they're doing rather then give it to someone who has been there awhile.

Advice to Senior ManagementI would say to make sure your managers are doing what they're supposed to and not making things look like they're supposed to always look only when you are coming in to the store.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
