    Pros

    65% discount off food items, flex work schedule while going to school, better than your typical fast food job, able to move up to trainer.

    Cons

    They pay you barley above minimum wage, raises are very small, work you like dogs, they make the good employees do all the crap work, trainers don't get that much of a pay increase when promoted, cleaning tasks never end...The list goes on.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more and reward those employees who are superstars.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Really cares about their employees and works around your schedule. May it be a school or other job, they make sure you get the attention you need at work and the days off that you require.

    Cons

    Each store is run differently. If you work at one store, but get transferred to another store, its basically a whole new world and the expectations are different. It really depends on who the general manager is at the store. Also, since they have a reputation of having the cleanest cafes around, they really take it seriously about always cleaning and maintaining the dining room as well as the production line.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to share right now.
