Pros

free tea
weekly pay
fun environment

Teavana can be a very fun place to work as many of the people that work there are just really cool people, and you have the advantage of drinking free tea all day (which really comes in handy when you are stressed, tired, or hungry). They also sometimes give you free stuff which is really cool and I have lucked out by getting an AMAZING manager! I haven't worked here too long (about 3 months), but I have heard about rumblings of parties and such things if we meet sales goals which is really a great incentive to meet those goals.

Cons

hours are hard to come by and are not steady
Training can be way too time consuming.

Let me start off by saying that I am a college student who took this job hoping to make a couple of bucks before school started. This however did not happen. I was told that there was a 3 week training period which already seemed very long to me but there is A LOT to learn. Through this process, you work approximately 5 hours a week. My training, however, seemed to last about 5 or 6 weeks. I figured my hours would pick up after training but I am only working 1 day a week and have yet to see a check over $50. So be weary if you actually have bills to pay.

Advice to Management

Hours based simply on how much you sell is quite unfair considering the fact that some days are MUCH slower than others.

    Pros

    If you like to be busy, love to talk to customers all day lone this is the position for you ! The general manager is responsible for their own personal sales as well as store sales, and you are rewarded fairly.

    Cons

    Little time to train staff. Staff does not always responded to copy the manager approach of training. Staff turn over is higher than expected do to intense training system. This is not the job for people who have insecurities.


  2. Way too much pressure, Luck is a factor. But it is what it is.

    Pros

    Awesome products and standards.
    Great training.

    Cons

    Difficult to get hands on experience with little to no hours.
    For a company like this to not have recycling standards is just odd to me.
