I had heard many comments about this particular location, it was not flattering. I went with an open mind, yet soon discovered
rather quickly there were many cliques. The executive team were worse than the team members. Everyone had their own way
of doing tasks, one exec might tell you to close the cafe, then you get reprimanded for doing this by another exec. Little consistency, and lack of leadership forced me to move on. I guess the rumors about this location are true. SAD

I left the carson city nv location because management talks behind your back and lots of drama. be professional and if someone asks for feedback give them feedback instead of saying things behinds someones back. if the store is great then give more recognition as apposed to DO THIS AND DO THAT funny how many privileged people are and how hard we have to work for someone who gets back from 6 months maternity leave just to bonus off of your hard work with no recogination

I found a much better job, where I was treated with a great deal more respect, and the pay was better.

I’m in highschool, thought it would be a good first job. However Management are all kids 1-2 years older then me with no experience and no consideration to the fact that I am in school! So the schedule me during the day and then wonder why I call out of shifts. Additionally after the extremely fast pace, management and rude customers you only get a 10% discount

Hours are not guaranteed. Got hired in 3 weeks had a total of 12 hours. Not sure why they hire so many cashiers to work them 2 days 4hrs each day give them 2 weeks no hours and then the 3rd week only 4hr shift. They push red cards like crazy and get mad if you don't pressure the guest enough. I heard the LOD gets big time bonus money for red cards but cashiers nothing. Does not matter how fast or good you are they want more and more. Horrible place to work.

They hire people as ETL's that have no respect or work ethic, overpay them and work team members extra hard to cover their responsibilities.
