Pros

Great fair treatment and inclusive workplace. Good advancement opportunities and executive direction and communication. Benefits available through Manulife group benefits.

Cons

Staffing system doesn't provide enough labor. All tasks required can't be done at a regular pace. Burn-out is common especially among retail management.

Advice to Management

Allow for more labor at a retail level. Customers often view storyes as understaffed when the system says they're not.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Benefits were great, free beverages were awesome, also a good environment. You always seem to meet some good friends there.

    Cons

    Communication is not that clear, I've had great bosses and horrible bosses, rules seem to change every couple of months.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your employees, be a strong unselfish leader, and remember that if the job is getting done, calm down, people are aloud to have fun at a coffee shop.


  2. "went from great to not great in 6+ years"

    Former Employee - District Manager
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    the people you work with; the environment; brand identity; somewhat flexible schedule; the overall mission of the corporation; benefits given to most employees

    Cons

    upper management is out of touch with the real workload; increasing need to work many extra hours to stay caught up over last three years; DMs are caught in between the stores' reality & the RDs / RVPs expectations

    Advice to Management

    PLEASE take a reality check! The store jobs have gotten so much harder over the past 3 or 4 yaers that burnout is rampant! Don't always believe what you want to believe.
