    Pros

    Great place to work for a student, the company has flexible hours and ability provides a great opportunity to network and meet an endless variety of people. The company's pays low wages (nearly minimum wage), but offers good benefits if you actually take advantage of them.

    Cons

    Difficult to move up in management. Cliquey and robotic work environment.

    Enjoying this job depends solely and heavily upon the Store Manager you have.

    Pros

    Excellent insurance and employee assistance

    Cons

    Poor management will make this job a living hell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what the baristas have to say about the Store Manager. Allowing management to slack off causes poor work ethic in underlings and a low moral. Don't allow people who think setting others up for failure as the best method of training to run your stores. It is a recipe for disaster.
