Cashier (Current Employee), Columbus, OH – May 3, 2013
Pros: free lunch
Cons: no benefits
a typical day at work is clocking in, counting my drawer and doing inventory, cleaning, setting up for opening, working at the cash register and talking with the customers that come through my line. the most enjoyable part of the job is being lucky enough to work with co-workers whom are extremely helpful with anything and everything. the hardest part – more... of the job is when i see a customer upset about something but there was never a problem to fix the issue, and make sure the customer leaves happy. the management is great, always makes sure the employees are takin care of, getting their lunches/breaks, and that we have everything we need for a successful day. – less

Overall my days was ok. Didn't learn much from working there. The managers was cool. I really didn't talk to my coworkers like that. The hardest part was the rude customers. The most enjoyable part was going home.

Barista (Former Employee), Boston, MA – March 29, 2013
Pros: free breakfast and lunch.
Cons: did not work around my school scheduele.
A typical day at work would be coming in at 7 am in the morning everyday and attending the customers for breakfast. I would have to introduce them to new items the company has to offer in order to increase sales. I had to introduce them to deals, promotions, and other beneficiary items that could help increase revenue in any way. I have learned to move – more... in a fast pace but at the same time get the orders correctly and pay attention to every detail. I've learned to be organized, fast, and how to be professional. The hardest part of the day was leaving and saying good bye to everyone. We were a great team and that is why we all got along very well. The most enjoyably part of they day was the second I stepped into the building. Everyone has such a positive attitude and makes you want to spread the joy. It was really fun working with everyone, fooling around making jokes, but when it was time for my job to be done I take it very serious. – less
Barista, Cook and Prep (Former Employee), Center Valley, PA – January 30, 2013
Everything was really balanced there. No one was treated unfair and everyone was delegated properly. It was a nice work flow, if you enjoy the rushes every now and again. The co-workers were so easy to work with and so was management. The only hard parts were the tough customers and every now and again some of your co-workers. Overall it was a very – more... nice experience. Especially for it being a restaurant. – less
Barista, Cashier (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PA – October 16, 2012
Pros: free food
Cons: lack of hours
Usually I get there right before the lunch rush, and I jump right in. I take orders, serve the guests their food, and clean the lobby.That goes on for about 2 and a half hours until the rush is over. I then use the down time after the rush to stock up our supplies and set up the closing barista. At this job I have learned how important teamwork is. – more... The management is ok. They do their jobs well. My co-workers aren't as professional as I had hoped they would be but they do their work. The hardest part of the job has to be when we are short on staff and everyone's work is doubled. The most enjoyable part is when the guests are interacting with us and they are happy with our service. – less

Fun work place. Way too small but love the environment. Co-worker do not speak good English. When under pressure co-workers are too busy talking to them selves, forgetting about customers. But overall get the job done in a timely fashion.
