Not a fan

Sales Associate (Current Employee)

Pros40% discount (which is getting ridiculous to 30... ugh)
Get to try lots of different tea
Co-workers are mostly friendly and cool

ConsSelling tactics are ridiculously pushy and not sincere in the least.
Pressure from upper management policies stresses everyone out when trying to make goals.
Sampling... people don't like us offering them sugary tea. If they want it, they'll try it on their own will.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on what the customer actually wants... pushing them to buy stuff they don't need will only make them avoid the store in the future. You should want to build your customer base not just sell them a bunch of stuff only for them to be dissatisfied and not want to come back!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    great for a while

    Team Member (Current Employee) Calgary, AB (Canada)

    I have been working at Teavana part-time for less than a year

    Pros: 40% off free drinks often very cool co-workers Cons: pay is insulting especially with all your expected to do, you get graded weekly and only bonus upon 2% of your monthly sales if you… Advice to Senior Management: get off your high horse and start providing your store level employees with decent pay. i often talk with my gm and i know that… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
