    I worked at Guppy Teahouse part-time

    Pros

    There is a lot of flexibility with schedule and you make plenty of friends working here

    Cons

    Upper management began to fall off and hence the stores closing. Current upper management does all they can now to keep the business afloat while owners are careless.

    Advice to Management

    Take control of your stores! Listen to your workers otherwise you'll just continue to close stores.

        Cons

        Understaffed most of the time but it is manageable if you are working with more experienced servers. There are favorites and you should try to be on everyone's good side or you'll be doing everyone's side work. The Owner always refers you to his assistant manager James. If I ever had a question, the answer would always be "Ask James". It is best to ask the supervisors if you have a small issue such as scheduling...
