    Pros

    Great products, free sodas / coffee and discounted meal during work day, flexible hours, great customer service, fantastic coworkers. Great work environment at my location, 401k for part time workers, stock options too, great community services (fresh leftovers given to local food pantries)

    Cons

    fast paced, demanding customers, sometimes hard to get hours, even for full time workers if business is slow. Pay is pathetic for work volume. Can't rely on schedules, they can change within a day due to business flow. Too many managers that are never visible when needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be available during rush hours. Stop sending people home because of 15 minutes low time when lunch time peak is only 30 min away. Better pay. We are worth it and it stops the high turn over. Do not schedule manager meetings during lunch time unless you have enough people available for customer / line service
