Pros

can be a lot of fun at times, get to socialize with tons of people daily, learn to make fancy espresso drinks, good hours flexible with other types of daily necessities

Cons

bad wage, poor tips, unorganized training, arguments, management could be mre stiff, shift lead selection is baffling

    I have been working at Peet's full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a good place to work. Nice customers, fun atmosphere, cool culture. Great benefits and perks. Flexible scheduling for the most part.

    Cons

    Sometimes management is cliquish and will choose to promote based on personal preference rather than merit or time put in. Overall a good company, but I wish that HQ would spend more time perfecting speciality coffee and tea rather than adding a bunch of new products and sugary drinks. I feel like it has gone from Peet's Coffee and Tea to Peet's Oatmeal and Freddos....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to your employees and what they need.
