I worked at Cafe Gratitude full-time (More than 3 years)
Kind and welcoming co-workers, top quality product, clear and open communication. I loved working here and still have my friends from my time here.
Lower pay, restaurant hours, but it was worth it.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you're doing.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cafe Gratitude (San Francisco, CA).
The interviewer was great. I had already been told that practicing the Landmark "Forum" Training is the basis for all of the cafes. The cult is a bit much, but the basic concepts are doable: There is a big difference between what actually happened in a person’s life and the meaning or interpretation they made up about it People pursue an imaginary someday of satisfaction Human behavior is governed by a need to look good People create their own meaning to life – none is inherent in the world People have “rackets”, which are “being right about” or giving excuses for one’s own actions People can “transform” by simply declaring a new way of being instead of trying to change themselves in comparison to the past
No negotiation except scheduling. And when/whether or not one will take workshops.
