I worked at Peet's full-time

Pros

Excellent product quality, sourcing of beans.

Cons

Has lost who they are. Culture and values transparent in retail stores. However, at corporate level seemed almost non existent.

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

    Pros

    You get a free half pound of coffee, or a box of tea, a week.

    Cons

    The job is very physically demanding and not always safe. The pay starts out just above minimum wage and annual raises are not guaranteed to outstrip inflation. Full availability is often required for only part-time work, and there are no paid sick days, even in some cities where a paid sick day ordinance is in place (San Francisco, CA and Portland, OR)

    Advice to Management

    Peet's has a strong following and good customer loyalty. They are the Grandfather of Specialty Coffee in America. It is time for Peet's to be a leader, once again, of the American retail industry. By providing sustainable employment for all their employees, Peet's will ensure their place at the forefront of America's ever-growing coffee culture.
