If you love people and multi-tasking your ass off for little pay, then it's good

Cashier/Barista (Former Employee) Berkeley, CA

ProsThe best reason to work at Peet's in my experience, is definitely the free coffee and tea. It's a nice perk that all retail employees get; because you've ought to know the product you are selling. You'll meet a whole lot of interesting people too.

The work can be hard, but there is comradery.

ConsHours: I feel like one of countless baby birds clamoring for mama bird's attention. Sure, in the beginning, you are tempted with the average 20-25 hrs/wk during the period in order to qualify for benefits. But there are so many people working at a store that the benefits start with shift leaders. Kind of felt like a scam after a while.

Responsibilities: How can anyone move so quickly and gracefully? Drink lots of coffee of course....but more coffee than you can handle will get you in trouble! It's hard to get a bathroom break in the middle of the rush. Forget it soldier!

Advice to Senior ManagementHire less people so you don't have to have so many with cut hours. But hire more people who can commit 25+ hours for at least a year.
