Productive place
I learnt a lot while working there. Management team is cooperative. I have been working there since the day it was opened and so as training provided was very valueable.

First serving job
This is where I first started serving. Large sections after a few months and was able to make quick easy money in no time. Nights off were defiantly a huge plus!

Servers always crying, publicly shamed in front of guests, and time off is almost impossible to achieve.
The job itself, fine. The environment in which you are forced to work was abusive and toxic for your mental well being. It is very difficult to be regularly screamed at for being stupid and not good enough, and then try to maintain a happy demeanor to the guests. If you want a job where you are constantly talked down to, and not allowed time off during long weekends, holidays, spring break, summer break, winter break, christmas, or weekends, then this is the job for you. I'm sure other Cora franchises are fine, I just got unlucky enough to work at one where everyone is underappreciated, constantly stressed and walking on eggshells around management.
Pros
decent tips
Cons
Always understaffed, bully managment, no time off

Fun and enjoyable environment, great food!
I've been working at Cora for about 6 years now and I love the people and the hours are great. My management has always been very reasonable with taking time off which I appreciate. I've been a host and a server and both jobs are great and time always seems to fly when you are working hard. I personally prefer serving just because you get to talk to the guests a little more and the added tips are very nice.

Part time Server at Cora's
A typical day at work included greeting customers, taking and preparing orders, and clearing tables in a fast paced work environment. In this position I learned to multitask and deal with conflict. The management was very accommodating and supportive of their staff. Their motto was "A successful business is built on happy employees". The hardest part of this job was managing tables during rush hour as this can get very overwhelming at times. The most enjoyable part of this job was customer interaction and making someones day better through positive service and providing a successful customer experience.

would not recommend working there. poor management
I started working there in September 2015 it was wonderful at first. When business sold in August 2017 new management had no idea how to run restaurant. Also discovered servers were being deducted a half hour off time but not allowed too take the break.
The hours of the business are perfect loved early morning shift and enjoyed all my regular guests then in November management decided as a business decision too terminate myself and another coworker.

Always busy and never a dull moment
Typical day . Log in, check server sections, see if we are out of anything for the day, approach tables with a smile and good morning, suggest 2 items coffee juice or the days smoothie, take the orders check back to make sure the guests are satisfied,,
Receive payment and thank them for coming in


There is always something to keep you busy at cora and is the best thing about being a server there


Chefs and owner are always helpful, when there"s a guest concern, which makes the work environment a pleasant one to be around


Hardest part of the job is trying to balance so much at one given time


And the most enjoyable part is making the guests very happy, times when you connect with them are the best part of the postion

It's great for single mamas! You can work while your kids are in school and you are done when they are done! The people are great and the guests are wonderful after they have their coffee 😊
