Awesome coworkers, tough to make commission in such a low-end mall.

    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.
