Pros

-Great benefits (including discounts, weekly mark-outs, health, 401k, etc) -Usually great people to work with, many hard workers. -Pretty good starting wage (including tip).

Cons

-You can get burnt out quickly. -Hard to advance within the company. -An increasing focus on sales instead of customer service. -Scheduling can get rough especially when short-staffed. "Clopening" is not fun.

Advice to Management

You should not focus too much on quota rather on creative ideas to improve the atmosphere.

    High expectations met with disappointment, after learning that I was basically a fast food worker.

    Pros

    Free drinks while you work, friendly atmosphere.

    Cons

    The job of barista should be relabeled, "janitor with some coffee making in-between."

    Advice to Management

    Upper management was just ok. Not very motivating, but not bad either, just whatever.
