Barrista (Former Employee) –  Palo Alto, CA22 April 2013
A typical day was opening the store, cleaning and help set up machines to brew coffee and stock up on supplies and food. I learned how to be quick and learning what different types of coffee's taste like. Management was great with scheduling. Co workers were very outgoing. The hardest part was learning all the drinks. The most enjoyable was being able to interact with people and making sure they were having a good day.
Pros
benefits after 6 months
Cons
a lot of standing and you smelled like coffee all the time
