    I worked at Motley Coffeehouse part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A perfect part-time job for a college student at Scripps. This job was one of the highlights of my time at Scripps, and a perfect break from studying.

    Cons

    At times it can be stressful to have to work 9+ hours a week, especially during finals. But definitely worth-it

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!


  2. I worked along side THE BEST baristas and friends. I also learned how to make a mean peppermint mocha.

    I worked at Motley Coffeehouse part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    great work environment, great vibe and culture.

    Cons

    Management was at times disorganized and we ran out of a lot of key products behind the bar.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the ordering and handling of our products!


  3. Great personable working atmosphere, but can be hard to juggle the schedules of full-time students.

    I have been working at Motley Coffeehouse part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Sustainability focused and interested in social justice. Student-managers rely on and communicate with student baristas expensively.

    Cons

    Student-managers can miss important deadlines, causing product shortages which are frustrating to deal with as a barista.

    Advice to Management

    Limit the number of unique and complicated drinks on the menu, the wait for customers can be long and stressful for baristas when dealing with complex and unique menu items.

    Pros

    Laidback and fun environment Full of interesting, creative minds with big goals You get to serve some really nice people

    Cons

    You can't do other work while there like a lot of on-campus jobs Management has too much work to do for a student job and so that can be a difficult promotion

    Advice to Management

    Be more helpful in providing information for newly hired managers so that turnover is an easier process. Make sure to take notes as a manager early on.


  6. Overall this is a place of employment where you can gain incredible hands on experience while in school.

    Pros

    The level of agency you get at such a young age is remarkable. You have an incredible amount of freedom to exercise and accomplish your projects. Relationships between co-workers are unbeatable.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, due to its non-profit status the Motley cannot compensate its employees as well as other comparable positions elsewhere. However, for the kinds of experience you receive, the human capital you build and the support network, it is worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Finding a better, more efficient way to communicate information and changes to the employee's job would be helpful to the staff.
