Fun, flexible company to work for

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsMost everyone is friendly, it's flexible and generally all the staff are understanding and accommodating when scheduling hours. It's casual so you can dress how you want and it's in a great part of the city. Employees also get a discount on anything you buy.

ConsIt's really cold because all the open coolers, which can make it very uncomfortable. You get a 30 minute lunch break and it's not paid. You only get 10 paid vacation days, which isn't a lot considering the company is open year round (so you never get a break like normal companies that would close on Thanksgiving, Fourth of July, etc). As a female I always feel a bit uncomfortable sharing a unisex bathroom with all the men who work there, and the bathroom is in a main part of the office, where you can hear everything.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt'd be great to have a men's bathroom and a women's bathroom designated instead of sharing. It'd also make it much more pleasant if it could be warmer - customers always comment how they can't wait to get out into the heat and that it's freezing inside the store. The music that is played somehow ends up being reggae or heavy rock music, which isn't conducive to customers wanting to linger and walk around. It's very aggressive sounding and really puts you on edge. I know a lot of people have complained to me about it but I don't know who is responsible for playing the music.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
