Teavana Sales Associate

Sales Associate (Current Employee)

ProsGreat work environment, fun staff, great product that is worth selling. You learn a lot about the culture of tea drinking, which can be interesting if you are intrigued by learning new things.

ConsStarting wages as a sales associate aren't great- minimum wage. Bonus system is hardly incentive to work exceedingly hard to make personal sales goals. It's sometimes very difficult, depending on your store, to convince Americans that switching from coffee and soda to tea is a good idea, especially when the product is so much more expensive. You need a lot of dedication and belief in your product.

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