No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

-tea discount
-learned a lot about tea and how to brew
-as much tea as you wanted during your shift

Cons

-upper managment is crazy
-sales goals are insane and are super mean if you do not reach them. but love you if you are doing well
-bonus system is completely bogus. they act like it will be a second paycheck when in reality it's MAYBE 50 dollars

Advice to Management

the way management rides the staff makes everyone want to quit. do not promote based on sales, promote based on leadership qualities. promote internal trust, everyone thought all the managers and DM was extremely phoney.
