Hard work, little compensation.

Retail Sales and Barista (Current Employee) Concord, CA

ProsThe extensive coffee and tea knowledge is really something that you can keep with you forever. You become an expert in barista skills (and unfortunately will be harshly judging other's skills at every coffee shop you visit for the rest of your life).

ConsIf you don't have a completely open availability, they will not try to accommodate your schedule in any way. Raises are insignificant or nonexistent, even after working there and being a loyal employee for 2+ years, you're lucky to get a 10 cent raise. For all the hard work they have us doing on a daily basis, the pay is hardly worth it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
