The bipolar employer.

Barista (Current Employee) Gaithersburg, MD

ProsGreat discount (30% + free drinks up to 30 minutes before/after shifts), "Roast" stocks option, saving accounts, etc.

ConsManagers and supervisors are very nearly clinically bipolar. When a rush begins, it's nearly guaranteed that one will very nearly break down and take it out on the baristas. Also, guests can be extremely rude, as expected of any workplace.

Advice to Senior ManagementChoose management more wisely. There are multiple management-ready baristas at my location, yet those above them are not quite so proficient.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
