Very good first work experience, poor management
Barista/Cashier (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 9 February 2018
I've only been working here at Namao Second Cup for a little over two months, and it of course is fun. I absolutely love being a barista, I have fun coworkers and I absolutely love the regular customers! I just find the scheduling very unfair as I'm a high school student and applied for part-time hours, but work full-time hours sometimes. I need set days I can work but I haven't been listened to for that.
Other than that, working there is great. It's hard sometimes with rushes, as only two people are scheduled per shift, so it'd help to have more people working. I've definitely learned how to cope with big rushes. They're scary but I can handle them now. I love making the drinks using the espresso machine. I love interacting with different people throughout the day, including the regular customers.
Free drinks, 25% off food and drink, lovely co-workers
Long hours, scheduling is a bit unfair, stressful managers
