Pros: free tea, but i stopped because tea absorbs all the employee f-rts. yes they f-rt in the tea.
Cons: favoritism, managers stealing your sales because its easy to steal sales on the computer, aggressive sales and lying to customers, really expensive tea when you can buy the exact same thing for a lot cheaper everywhere else.
When I first applied here, I just thought it was a simple barista kind of job where you sell hot/iced tea, dry tea or make tea mixes for people while selling their tea kettles and other products. NO. This is an AGGRESSIVE sales position where you're supposed to try to drag people into the stores with free tea samples, where you tour them around the – more... store, leading them to the ridiculously expensive Cast Iron pots (where you can buy A LOT cheaper online or in other stores), and then to other areas of the store. 90% of the time people catch onto what you're doing and shy away or say "this is commission based isnt it? I can tell...". Unless you want to embarrass yourself by looking like a desperate fool, then this is the perfect job for you! By the way for cheaper BETTER QUALITY tea, shop anywhere else but teavana. Teavana's products are cheap material anyway! The amount of times they open the canisters to "show off the tea", the tea isn't even fresh anymore. The tea has absorbed the f-rts of the employees since more than half of the tea canisters are at butt level anyway lol!!!!! Please get better quality and fresher tea elsewhere!!!!!!! If you want good quality cast iron then shop in asian stores or WELL KNOWN stores. Working in Teavana is a ripoff as well because the managers STEAL your sales. This has happened to me several times, I got the manager fired after pointing it out to upper management. I quit the store, too much drama and f-rting from management and employees. (I had to dash out the word because it warned me of inappropriate language! Its the truth though, maybe this cant handle the truth) – less
