    Pros

    Peet's offers a lot of flexibility in regards to scheduling, teaches a team dynamic, and opportunities for leadership training and selling a quality product.

    Cons

    Peet's once provided part time benefits such as stock options for their part-time employees that they no longer offer. In addition, the sick policy runs counter to city ordinances.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to perfecting the core product (coffee/tea) rather than branching out to novelties (oatmeal, tea coolers, etc). Peet's customers are a very special brand of person who are often dedicated to Peet's ethics and integrity toward their product and craftsmanship. Often a wider array of product distracts from the primary area of expertise and causes a decline in the quality of the product (coffee/tea).
