I worked at Teavana part-time (Less than a year)
Free drinks while you work, pretty decent discounts on everything, and you develop a great little tight knit family with your coworkers and meet some great people.
The sales process is so sneaky, slimy, disgusting. Several times I had to basically trick people into buying way more tea than they wanted, their jaws would drop when they got to the register, they'd walk out stunned and I'd be told I did a fantastic job. If you don't meet your quotas you'll lose hours, but it's impossible to meet your quota most of the time. You'll get phone calls from upper management in the middle of a weekday afternoon yelling at you to sell more when there's only a whole dozen people in the entire mall.
Advice to Management
Get rid of the sales quotas - the tea is wonderful, and if us employees weren't all so concerned with meeting our quotas in order to keep our job and keep our hours, we might actually be able to sell with morals and happiness instead of sneaky sales tactics.
