Very Under-trained

Team Member (Former Employee)
Saint Louis Park, MN

ProsGood benefits (if you work 20 or more hours)
Never bored

ConsDidn't have any training before being thrown onto the front register
Many employees and managers break a lot of the sanitary rules and safety rules
Have to deal with very rude customers

Advice to Senior ManagementSanitation rules and safety rules should ALWAYS be followed. Also, brand new employees need more training or the store will flop.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

We didn't know what to do because… Advice to Senior Management: Communicate. And learn how to be a barista. Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
