Pros

Great fair treatment and inclusive workplace. Good advancement opportunities and executive direction and communication. Benefits available through Manulife group benefits.

Cons

Staffing system doesn't provide enough labor. All tasks required can't be done at a regular pace. Burn-out is common especially among retail management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow for more labor at a retail level. Customers often view storyes as understaffed when the system says they're not.

    Pros

    Benefits were great, free beverages were awesome, also a good environment. You always seem to meet some good friends there.

    Cons

    Communication is not that clear, I've had great bosses and horrible bosses, rules seem to change every couple of months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your employees, be a strong unselfish leader, and remember that if the job is getting done, calm down, people are aloud to have fun at a coffee shop.
