I have been working at Scooter's Coffee part-time (More than a year)
-Coworkers are super sweet, nice and funny. Expect to build good relationships with them.
-Not too overcomplicated, I completed my general training within two days.
-Customers are generally pretty pleasant and can be generous with tips.
-If you have good attention to detail or like things like baking or decorating, it can be fun to put the drinks and food together.
-Managers are very involved and help you instead of sitting back and watching employees do everything themselves.
-Free drink per shift, discounts on food and merchandise even at other locations.
-Everyone is expected to contribute a fair amount. Managers are very polite about making sure no one is doing more or less work than anyone else.
-No official break, although you can stop for a minute and make yourself a drink in between rushes
-Sometimes gets hectic during rushes, especially with a bunch of new trainees
-Not super accommodating for emergencies like family, sickness, schedule conflict, etc. You need to give them a couple weeks' notice to change your availability and for any emergency you still *must* get someone to cover your shift.
Advice to Management
Keep maintaining, make sure to be thorough and informative to trainees so they can be self-motivated and not so confused later down the road.
I applied online. I interviewed at Scooter's Coffee (Omaha, NE) in August 2017.
The interview itself was pretty easy. They really only asked me questions about myself and about the company instead of asking me questions about my strengths and weaknesses. Just be yourself and answer all the questions in complete sentences instead of one word answers.
