Pros

Fun and fast paced
Great tasting products- especially the espresso based drinks
Friendly and supportive fellow team members and supervisors

Cons

Employees are afterthought
Downsizing came as shock to stores. Could have been handled better as it left many unemployed within a week.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Many employees at my store felt undervalued. Management could show more appreciation. Something like a Christmas gift may seem trivial but it means a lot. Getting a letter that basically amounted to telling us we should consider it an honor to work for the company is not really a good look. I suppose what followed with the store closings was really just a reflection of that company/customer first attitude.

Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    It's a great place if you thrive on customer interaction.

    Cons

    DM/corporate keeps you on too tight of a leash when it comes to labor, so your store almost always runs short-staffed.
