Dayton, OH

ProsGood coworkers, educational coffee experience, relaxed atmosphere, and great customers. Always felt like I was around a supportive group of friends moreso than coworkers.

ConsCorporate management is sometimes detached from the reality of the business. Heavily pushes certain items that don't sell very well, instead of focusing on better basic coffee blends. High emphasis on keeping labor hours down, which means we're often short-handed.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to employee suggestions, focus more so on quality than crowding our menu with dozens of useless mixes. Improve the employee's POS software to speed up entry and allow changes WITHOUT deleting the entire drink entry.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
