Barista/ Ovenline (Former Employee) – Exton, PA – June 24, 2018
When I first started working here a couple years ago, I really enjoyed the work environment and the people I worked with. Everyone stayed on top of their duties and responsibilities. However, the whole place itself started to decline, meaning the management, cleanliness, and taking care of the place in general. I started to feel so unmotivated and really dread the days when I knew I had to go in.

When Cosi was around, I thought they had the best bread in town. I wish they were still around and didn't have to close down! It was so fun working there, the people were great, the owners were so nice! And everyone got a long. I was even crossed trained in the kitchen.

Cosi is a overall nice place to work if your looking for an opportunity to work with fresh foods. The people and the management in the location I was at were nice. The customers that patronized the restaurant helped to maintain a nice atmosphere as well.
Catering Manager/Barista (Former Employee) – Mansfield, MA – May 5, 2018
Very relaxed, lots of down time, but when it's time to work, its very fast paced. Lots of regulars. The days fly by. The tips are great, and every one for the most part is friendly. Management is either really tight, when they dont need to be, and later back when they shouldn't be.
Shift Leader (Former Employee) – New Rochelle, NY – April 24, 2018
It wasn’t what I wanted. However, it paid the bills. I had moved because of my new born son. It was the first place I got hired at. The company has a good aura. They tend to hire young so there’s plenty of maturation needed. At least at that location.

Barista/Cashier/Server (Former Employee) – Stamford, CT – April 20, 2018
when I first started at cosi on high ridge road it was a fun place to be. but the more time I spend working there I started to hate my job the manager there is horrible. I felt like you would get fired on the spot if you stick up for yourself. since I work there I have seen barista starting and going for no reason.
Support Representative (Current Employee) – New York, NY – April 20, 2018
in my time with Cosi i learned a lot about communication and how it can help improve not only relationships with the guest but also with coworkers and business partners. At times is can be a very fun and relaxing place to work and other times it can be the complete opposite. The most enjoyable part was building relationships and bonds with executives as well as hourly partners.

Barista (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – April 9, 2018
This place was my first and worst job. There was a lack of communication between managers. This created a tension between my schedule planning as well as others. The day was usually slow with several peaks of rush hours. We were so short staffed that I found myself doing many jobs at once. Such as cashier, serving food, bussing tables, as well as, making coffee as a barista. The one thing I learned working here was hard work. I learned how to do my part and talk to people in a food business setting. I was able to develop people skills and my own work ethic. The only thing I enjoyed from this place was gaining experience, and also that they are closed down, and no longer in service.
