I worked at Teavana part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

A good deal of the products were fantastic. Decent employee discounts, and free drinks for employees.

Cons

Working there involved working in a very high pressure sales environment that didn't seem to fit with the product being sold. The management staff, and above, were very micromanaging. It was a highly frustrating and discouraging place to work.

Also "Part-Time" was, at most, 10 hours on a good week. Some weeks even good sales people were getting stiffed hours.

Advice to Management

Management really needed to allow their employees to get comfortable with how they were selling. The constant "do it this way" was obnoxious. I never got a chance to find my own process for selling.

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

    Pros

    Its a job and co-workers are agreeable

    Cons

    Absolutely everything else is a con

    Advice to Management

    Actually learn to manage your stores by being consistent with who you hire as a manager. Stop with the change in bosses every 3 months which disables store dynamics.


  2. "Awesome coworkers, tough to make commission in such a low-end mall."

    Perhaps developing a frequent buyers card would help buyers shop more frequently.
