It was so much more stressful than it had to be for a barista position. My interview lasted over an hour with the store manager. It was painful, his questions were vague, it seemed to never end. Only positive was a free drink. It turned me off to this company, they seem to be serious snobs.

I was trained by a very experienced Barista who in 3 months got promoted to a Supervisor so I was amazed. There's computer training and pamphlets for you to study and go over that are really helpful. They train you for each position/ have you shadow trustworthy baristas. The best part is hands on training when they throw you right in, I feel like that's always the best practice!

At first it might seem like a lot to remember but once you keep practicing you get the hang of it and it seems super easy! I still remember them til this day.

This is a joke. My manager barely puts in 20 hours a week, schedules are never posted, never comes in to help out. It seems to me there are no real checks and balances as far as how much the store managers actually work. It seems like a lot of pay for barely any work. Very unfair system..
