This job was honestly the best job I've ever had. My manager at the time treated everyone fairly and showed genuine authenticity. Learning more than the taste of coffee was super beneficial. I will say it is definitely for younger people so high school drama will be inevitable but overall everyone is kind, and ready to serve! Would definitely go back just for fun.

Great part-time job experience. I worked at Port City Java as a barista in college and it was a great part-time job that I was able to have while in school. The ambiance is extremely nice and relaxing. Plus the management was always helpful.

I worked for Port City Java for 2 years and it has been my favorite job yet! I only quit because I was moving, if that wasn't the case, I'd most likely still be there. Training can be overwhelming but once you get into the groove of things, the job becomes second nature and quite enjoyable. Everyone at my cafe became some of my best friends, the environment was very open and comfortable. My manager was amazing and the sense of family there between coworkers made me actually look forward going into work most days!

The work itself is very satisfying if you put in the extra effort to make the store run smoothly. When I make a cappuccino with perfectly glossy, thick foam or when everything in the store in neat and orderly I feel quite content. How much you enjoy this kind of work is really about your own attitude towards it. There are tasks that are unpleasant (no one wants to clean the drain by the espresso machine or the big airpot) but it helps to think like, “well, if I don’t do it then someone else is gonna have to” and then that makes it easier to do that task. And as an end result you take a little pride in making the store clean and shining and I also think it adds to your sense of self respect that you don’t put yourself above doing somewhat messy cleaning tasks. I enjoy working here despite some annoyances. The pay isn’t good but the schedule is wonderfully flexible and there are opportunities to show creativity if you keep an eye open for them. What I like best about this job is that after the shift is done - it’s done. I can go home and focus on the things that are really important to me without being distracted by things that have happened at work. I’ll probably only work here a little while longer but I won’t look back and think that I wasted my time being here. It’s been fun! ~ Also, coffee culture is lit ~

fun small coffee shop to workout, would recommend for highschoolers during the summer. I had a good time and learned a lot. Overall pretty easy and didn't require too much
