Pros

Free tea!
Generous Benefits
Good bonus system if you are in a busy location.
Great discount.
Did I mention free tea?

Cons

Extremely sales focused with high goals, this can cause a lot of in-store competition. There tends to be a lot of turnover which makes managing frustrating because training is very intense and and will typically take around 15 shifts.

    I have been working at Teavana full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    40% discount on products.. Cups of tea for yourself while at work... And that is it!

    Cons

    Health Benefits God Awful, upper mgmt motto is; be grateful you have a job and keep your mouth shut because there are a 100 other people who could take your place, when you go to hr for help they will use it against you - "open door policy is a joke" very unethical company, my boss would have me " work " people out of system by giving 5 hours or less a week to people until they quit.. The sales process is ridiculous, you literally have a text book on how to push very expensive teas and tea pots, they have entire sales process scripted complete with responses to all and any objections, very very very high stress and pushy sales atmosphere.. Check Yelp reviews most people HATE walking into a Teavana

    Advice to Management

    Andy and Peter Everyone deserves to be treated with respect, hopefully Starbucks can teach you and upper mgmt how to actually value and respect employees
