    I have been working at Mercury's Coffee full-time

    Pros

    Active job! Always on your feet and moving constantly. Customer service heavy, but that is expected in the service industry. Coworkers are almost always positive, upbeat, and love their jobs!

    Cons

    Rare to get two consistent days off if full time, unless heavily negotiated beforehand. Holiday hours are on a volunteer basis.

    Advice to Management

    Quick turnover isn't ideal, but is sometimes necessary in the barista world if the barista isn't a great fit. Enjoyed that management was actively involved in locations.

    I worked at Mercury's Coffee full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The baristas a customers are fantastic, the coffee is good and so is most of the food.

    Cons

    Management is terrible. Double standards and scheduling outside of availability is a serious problem here. The base pay is $11 which is nice, but then you find out that shop managers get $17 an hour for doing pretty much the same job as you. AND they get paid time off. The managers constantly talk bad about everyone and how no one is good enough to work there.

    I worked at Mercury's Coffee full-time

    Pros

    Family gets the same discount you do.

    Cons

    Takes advantage of employees, coworkers are rude, owner hits on employees, horrible environment

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to keep a healthy environment and stop being so horrible to your employees! No wonder people only work for 2 months and then quit!
