    This store (River Oaks) is not run well as it lacks cleanliness, order, and direction.

    Pros

    The variety of merchandise is nice.

    Cons

    The store is dirty. It isn't dusted often enough (if at all.) Various areas of the store are not cleaned well, including the coffee area. I do not recommend tasting any coffee products at the River Oaks location. The water you drink may have come from the bathroom sink and the milk frother may have been rinsed in the same sink. Assistant managers have bad attitudes and talk negatively about management among themselves and with staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Purchase proper cleaning supplies. Strengthen rapport among staff. Get control of scheduling. Don't clean anything in the bathroom. Don't get water for coffee machines from the bathroom. Don't rinse anything in the bathroom. Learn how to properly clean a bathroom. Get water from the kitchen; it's a kitchen. Have an updated staff contact list.

    Pros

    Fun environment, almost everyone is helpful, they work around your schedule, learn a lot about culinary, good as a part time or side job.

    Cons

    Shifts are only 4 and 1/2 hours long with a max of 25 hours a week, schedule is a mess, always changing, not a job you can live off of, you usually only get about 13 hours a week. They hire seasonal associates instead of giving extra hours to the regular associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being bias and give employees need more hours.
