    Pros

    Pretty flexible with hours, depending on your manager. The environment is fast-paced, which helps time go by quickly and keeps you on your toes. The work itself can be real fun at times if you have good coworkers. They'll help you survive some of the ridiculous customers you'll come across.

    Also, you get pretty good benefits. Medical and 401k matching are great, considering you can get both even when you're part-time.

    Cons

    Many many repetitive tasks. Customers can wear down on you. You'll be treated like something less-than-human more times than you thought possible. Depending on your store, opening shifts can suck (be there at 3:45am). Same can be said for closing shifts, if you have a late-night store. And like all places, your manager will make or break your experience.

    Advice to Management

    Ask your baristas what can improved! They're the ones on the floor dealing with the customers every day. They know what is needed.
