    I worked at Dazbog (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The atmosphere of the stores are positive and coworkers are creative, interesting people who are passionate about coffee. Dazbog is actually a local company with many corporate and franchise stores but roast locally. Also, the roasting process and the grade of the coffee is excellent.

    Cons

    The company being mid-sized means close contact to Corporate. The owners are greedy and honestly do not care about their employees well being. The brothers only care about money being made and do not share their millions with employees. The pay depends on which store one works at and it is one of the few companies that makes employees draft proposals for raises. When an employee is known to go above and beyond, why is it necessary to prove one's worth on a piece of paper?

    Corporate needs more employees at their office, rather than one operations manager and one area manager (aka: District Manager) because communication becomes messy as both managers are only two people and can only handle so much. They do the work of at least three people and deserve to be treated well, even though they are completely taken advantage of by the owners.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to the owners, Leo and Tony Yuffa, is to please:

    -Practice equality (aka: sexism is rampant)

    -Hire more corporate managers

    -Appreciate your employees because they are the ones making you millions

    -Higher pay because you will be more likely to keep employees

    -Stop making shift leaders do manager duties without the title and pay. Salary employees are cheaper than hourly employees.

    -Consider paying managers a stipend for gas and cell phone bills because of the constant contact (data usage) and driving required for the position

    -Drop by all of your stores equally, not just the favored Milwaukee location

    -Positive reinforcement is extremely beneficial

    Pros

    Only pro is the tips, and great regular customers. The food in the cafeteria is good too

    Cons

    HORRIBLE MANAGER! The whole company is a joke. HORRIBLE pay and hours, no benefits or advancement

    Learn how to treat your employees with respect. Do a better job at management.

    I have been working at Dazbog part-time

    Pros

    Making drinks is fun, good coworkers, good coffee and food

    Cons

    Really unorganized company, boring, management is kind of a joke, not high standards for management or employees. Scheduling was annoying, they could only offer me part time, but I worked 5 days a week. My shifts were short and not even worth getting ready and driving all the way there. PAY! Horrible horrible pay.

    Advice to Management

    Have higher standards for your store, don't schedule so weird. Pay your employees more if you want them to work hard for you

    I have been working at Dazbog full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    no room for growing unfortunately, would love to be more in charge of things, the salary should be much higher for a management position and the benefits should be added as well

    Cons

    no room for growing unfortunately, would love to be more in charge of things. No benefits and no vacation or sick days, customers are sometimes not very nice.

    I have been working at Dazbog part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, you may work with some cool people. Store discount, and free shift drinks.

    Cons

    If you work for a corporate store they require a minimum one year of industry experience, but pay minimum wage. Shift leads get only one dollar more than minimum wage. The products and machines they use are subpar, not quality coffee. Instead of focussing on quality service and drinks, they time you on how quickly you greet customers and make drinks, getting as many people in and out as fast as possible. And 'up sell' is a phrase you'll hear about a hundred times a day. I could go on about the laundry list of minute things they freak out over, but I'll spare you. Also, it's clear the owners have very little respect for their employees, they only knew the neme of the store manager...

    Advice to Management

    Realize that if you want excellent baristas who are willing to out up with the bs culture of corporate 'coffee', you at leaste have to pay them well for it. Instead of blaming the staff for complaints, improve the quality of your product and experience.
