    Pros

    Its a job and co-workers are agreeable

    Cons

    Absolutely everything else is a con

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually learn to manage your stores by being consistent with who you hire as a manager. Stop with the change in bosses every 3 months which disables store dynamics.

    I worked at Teavana full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Free tea
    40% Discount
    Free LB of Starbucks Coffee per week
    Cool stuff to take home

    Cons

    Constantly changing sales models and processes
    Poor business decisions made by upper management
    Pay could be better
    Decietful tactics used to increase sales

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruit, utilize, develop, and recognize talent when you see it at every level. Being a good sales person does not translate into being a good manager or vice versa. Do not give unsubstantiated health information to customers on the health benefits of the different types of tea, especially to the effect of "This will help you fight your cancer." Thankfully Starbucks now owns the company and things are changing for the better.
