    Pros

    Excellent Benefits.
    Decent Atmosphere.
    Good for those that like to converse or hate desk jobs.
    Good fun learning about products and services.

    Cons

    Somewhat Physically Demanding In Many Stores.
    Store fairness is based entirely on the manager.
    Senior Management Immune to Complaints.
    Customers, regardless of your kindness, can be just plain mean.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your partners, seriously. If I come and tell you a problem I have with my store manager, don't just tell the store manager and walk away. Really?

    Pros

    GREAT BENEFITS!! full benefits given to part-time employees who work more then 20/hr. a week. Work with some great people, made a lot of friends. Get to meet and talk with a lot of people. Never get bored cause there's always something to be done. Free Coffee. lot of company sponsored volunteer opportunities within the community

    Cons

    staffing cut backs can make shifts more stressful, told to do more with less. Affects new employees who do not get the coaching time they need and deserve. This is a company not a mom and pop shop so dollars win out over people. Management styles differ greatly from store to store from micro-managers to just plain lazy. Some were great to work for and understood what it took to do the job. Starting pay is weak. Constant new product to push, track , and meet goals. i guess the biggest downfall is at one time this was a company i was proud to work for. Changes over the years have made it a less rewarding place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pushing new product and get the basics right again. The barristas on the floor are the face of the company, keep them happy. It's just coffee!
