Nice part time job for students
If you're applying to a new location, you'll be dealing with BOGO immediately, despite knowing little to nothing, which can be very overwhelming and hectic. Luckily, the trainers are very friendly and patient.
There are four main positions at Chatime: cash (taking orders), runner (handing drinks out, preparing toppings and bases), shaker (making the drinks), and prep (cooking tapioca, brewing tea, making smoothies, etc.). None of these positions are entirely difficult to master, though it becomes annoying when there aren't enough staff scheduled... you'll find yourself working two positions at once, and if it gets super busy, you will not have time to start cleaning/preparing for closing, meaning you will not leave your shift on time.
I definitely enjoy the work culture at Chatime, co-workers were great, and the majority of customers are friendly. Management was flexible in regards to hours during the school year, though management isn't the best.
Tip: I suggest bringing paper and pen if you make it to training! You'll be expected to make lots of notes!
