I have been working at Peet's full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

There is such a huge upswing in what is possible carrer wise at Peet's. There are flexible options for work outside of the office and you can really take your development in your own hands.

Cons

They don't always promote the best people for jobs, or it seems like the interview process is meant to place a specific person before the process really starts. The pay increases are very small as well.

    I worked at Peet's full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some co-workers and customers may become your friend and, as with most retail jobs, will become the biggest pro for going to work. If you're a student the best reason to work here is the flexible scheduling. Shifts can range from 4 to 8 hours depending on where you work. If you love coffee you get a free 1/2 pound every week plus all the coffee drinks your heart can handle. The benefits are typical for a full-time employee.

    Cons

    Depending on your manager you may find that schedules are sloppy, going against your availability. Some managers are inefficient and disorganized, leading to a chaotic work environment. Some stores have high turn over. You may feel pressure to work on your day off to keep your job. Your manager and corporate may try and convince you that you can have a future with the company, which translates into being a manager for the rest of your life. DON'T DO IT. Some customers get off on treating you like trash, and come in everyday to belittle you.
