Former Employee - Teaologist in Saint Louis, MO

I worked at Teavana part-time (less than an year)

Pros

-tea discount
-learned a lot about tea and how to brew
-as much tea as you wanted during your shift

Cons

-upper managment is crazy
-sales goals are insane and are super mean if you do not reach them. but love you if you are doing well
-bonus system is completely bogus. they act like it will be a second paycheck when in reality it's MAYBE 50 dollars

Advice to ManagementAdvice

the way management rides the staff makes everyone want to quit. do not promote based on sales, promote based on leadership qualities. promote internal trust, everyone thought all the managers and DM was extremely phoney.

    Pros

    Wonderful Co-Workers, Great Products, Strong Training, Provided motivation for promotion, fun work environment thanks to some my fantastic in-store managers. Good Employee discount.

    Cons

    Horrible Pay; even after a promotion, inconsistent scheduling; sometimes we wouldn't know if we needed to work the next day because the schedule was not posted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees better.

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

    Pros

    This has to be the only retail company on earth that promotes so quickly and really takes care of their employees. How many people can say they've met with the CEO of their company on more than one occasion, and I only work in a store, nowhere near the corporate offices.

    Cons

    there are absolutely none. you work hard, you get rewarded, period.
