I worked at Teavana part-time (More than a year)
It's a good place to learn how to sell. They change how you sell frequently so your always learning. And if your good there is room for growth in the company.
They don't let you work more than 21 hours a week and they spread that out over five days so the cost of going to work is pretty high. Your hours are tied to sales unless your a manager or team lead, so everyone is fighting everyone else. They also schedule way to many people so competition is as nasty as it can get. And the pay is supper small and you always run the risk of being sent home. Also managers will pressure lower level employees to buy things from them to make up for sales not made during the day.
Advice to Management
Longer shifts like 6 or 8 hours for all employees. Better pay or commission instead of bonuses. Also you might want to change the way the sales reports show up because a employee making nine dollars an hour can see the profit and cost of goods what they are selling and it's really discouraging. Oh and stop changing the sales tactics so often it's confusing to the long standing customers.
