    Not a terrible job.

    I worked at Seattle's Best Coffee

    Pros

    The training was in depth and covered anything I could ever need to know, within months I was opening and closing the cafe as well as training other employees, so there was a lot of room for growth if you worked hard.

    Cons

    The only cons were some of the customers we had to deal with, but the company itself was a pleasure to work at.

    I worked at Seattle's Best Coffee

    Pros

    It is a fun place to work. You get free drinks and an employee discount. The hours were very flexible.

    Cons

    The store does not make a lot of money so hours get cut. It is easy to have unfair treatment in the workplace. You don't get paid well.
