only can speak to coworkers. management and everything else ruined it. don’t expect to be treated fairly. The discount makes the books reasonably discounted.

Interview Questions

I went for the barista job today. The first questions was what books are you reading? Then if I had a YouTube channel, what would it be about? Name a time when you had to take a different approach with a customer, which confused me lol what would you do if was slow? Why should I pick you?

Shared on November 9, 2018

They asked me why I wanted to work there. What situations have you been in where there was a disagreement, how did you solve the disagreement. If you were given a responsibility that you weren't prepared for how would you handle it?

Shared on April 28, 2018

Very simple interview. Asked the basic questions, and did a background check.
