It was fun to work in that store but very tiring
Barista (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 25 September 2017
The hours were very long because we were short staffed most of the time. I would work 10 hours on the weekends because they would expect the weekends not too be as busy as the weekdays because we were in the business district, but that was not the case half of the time. The breaks were only 30 mins if you work for 8 hours, and it was unpaid. You also have to pay for your food if you buy your food at the store, and even with the 20% discount, it was still pretty expensive.
What I loved most was working with the people there. Most of the time, the people you work with will be very friendly, outgoing, and easy to talk to, so it does make working there more enjoyable and easier to tolerate.
Free coffee, free pastries at the end of the day
Long hours, short breaks, have to pay for your own food
