Very hectic, low pay, awesome people

Barista (Current Employee)

ProsThe people who work here are great. Management is helpful and patient; fellow employees are fun, and most cutomers are really chill.

ConsBaristas here are worth so much more than minimum wage. It's extremely fast paced, and trust me, they deserve every penny.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease give us higher pay and more time off. Everybody is completely drained after just four hours of work, and more pay raises are deserved by everyone.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
