Fast paced, good training, many issues
Barista/shift leader (Former Employee) – Sutton – 30 May 2018
The stores themselves can be real fun to work in, however there are a lot of demands placed on your personal time, you are expected to attend out of hours parties or explain why, you are expected to be available hours before your shift starts if they call you in and also hours after so don't you dare make any sort of appointment because if you refuse to stay you can be subject to disciplinary action, believe me, they will find something to blame you for so they can call you in for That. Training is exceptional however and they really seem to want to create a great environment when you train but you can't implement all they want you to at floor level without having to justify things to management, it's hard work for as little as they can get away with paying and is painfully understaffed.
Fabulous job for young, single people who love to socialise out of work and grow real friendships with their colleagues, not so great if u have a family or outside commitments, basically if you can commit 100% of your time to them you will do great.
Meals on shift, free coffee, great training
Long hours, very demanding on your time
