Barista/Shift Supervisor in Ashburn, VA
on October 28, 2018
Good job to learn customer service and team building skills. Great leadership from management and flexible working hours and with staff willing to learn.
Cashier/Barista in Sugar Land, TX

I started a few months ago, got very little training and was expected go above and beyond what was in the job description when I applied. People are constantly quitting and hours fluctuate from being less than 20 to almost 40 for a part time hire. The only perk is free food and coworkers, management does not really care and the place is pretty filthy. Will not be working here much longer.

They overwork you here! I did not appreciate the amount of work they make you do for the little pay that they offer. It was not worth it, that’s for sure.

Management are overworked and tend to get overwhelmed. So, they take their stress out on their crew members, making work more heated. Great coworkers and overall, I learned how to better deal with big rushes.

Management sucks, there’s barely any hours to give out, you’re better off working somewhere that will pay you more I had to beg the general manager to give me more than 50c on my raise
