    I have been working at Teavana part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    1) given the privilege to have free cups of tea during your shift
    2) receive 40% off all merchandise and loose leaf tea
    3) Learn to be an amazing salesperson with rigorous tasks that no other sales job would ever have you do.

    Cons

    The amount we are paid isn't properly justified for the amount of effort we exert and the intensity of the sales process we are forced to perform immaculately.

    I prefer honesty to be the best policy, but Teavana certainly does not have this with the customer in mind.

    I have been working at Teavana full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers are generally nice, some general managers run prizes so you can get free things. The discount is pretty good. I've worked at numerous stores and found job satisfaction is highly depends on management and store. Promotion is easy, as it is expanding quickly.

    Cons

    VERY sales driven. They want you to be very pushy. I was very successful and ranked highly amongst the entire company each week but would still be scolded for my friendly sales tactics and not following the script precisely. Many people cannot handle the pressure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your workers freedom to add a personal touch that works for them.
