Fast Paced Fun Place to Work
Café Server (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – October 24, 2017
I worked at the cafe in Barnes and Noble and got along with everyone hired on both book and cafe side. I was paid fairly and according to the experience I had, and learned how to make all the drinks on the menu. I also learned great customer service skills, how to work under pressure, and how to stay calm under lots of stress. Management was amazing and very understanding of everyone's situation in life and went above and beyond to help the employees advance through the day. I will say, they have lockers, but you're not assigned a locker, you're assigned a lock, and you can't keep anything in your locker overnight. My location was understaffed in the cafe, so the hardest part of the day, was just doing my work because we were constantly slammed and backed up. But I loved the people I worked with, and the overall, relaxed but professional attitude of the store.
Excellent discounts, good employee community
low hours, understaffed
