Good colleagues
The manager is not nice sometimes.

Good pay if compare with other cafes. However, the workload is too much if compared to the pay and stress.

Stressful working in time-pressure roles, such as barista or hot chef.

They want people to have full open availability but work part time hours stretched over ridiculous rotas - like, it's not at all unusual to be scheduled 12 days in a row and still not make full time hours. Since the covid crisis, it's pure slavery.
Pros
slavery with no consequence for company
Cons
slavery
