Former Employee - Barista in York, PA
Former Employee - Barista in York, PA

I worked at Borders part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Making coffee was so much fun, and the regulars are amazing!

Cons

I was promised a raise and never received one. Barely survived on this income. Borders rewards sign up percentages.

Advice to Management

The management expected us to pull the same Borders rewards signup percentages as the cashiers selling books and miscellaneous items. People come to the coffee shop for coffee---not to be hounded about signing up for some card they have to pay for every year.
