      Pros

      It is a fun job, with that is pretty flexible with your working hours.

      Cons

      You will find yourself doing a lot of things on your own, depending upon your coworkers. One person in particular, refused to do work which left me to do more work.

      Pros

      The coworkers you make are great, you'll make long time friends there, the dress code is fairly relaxed, the menu is fairly simply, the tasks are relatively easy

      Cons

      Overworked and underpaid, starbucks makes more than us for seemingly less work, the managers are cool but the company itself refuses to pay its workers a living wage, easily overworked
