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

    Pros

    I got free tea and coffee at Starbucks. The training was pretty good. My store was small so cleaning went quickly. I always loved sampling.

    Cons

    People quit/get fired all the time. I stuck it out a year and my availability was taken advantage of. I was a pretty good sales person, but my store was so low volume that it was almost impossible for us to have a good day. I hated being pushy with sales. I found that if I was more honest with customers they where more likely to buy something AND come back for more. I was always scolded on this even though when the sales where pushed on people they usually returned it at some point.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you have a good employee, remember to treat them fairly. If you over work them they will usually leave and not on good terms. You cant force everyone to buy something either.
