No time based raises, very white washed upper management, they’re not involved in the larger coffee community. Not committed to the growth of lower level employees

Feel mostly supported though I have received vague and indirect communication regarding succession and potential for raises/bonuses.

10/8/2019 12:19:00Joe Coffee Company Barista2018
At time of hire: $10/hr tipped for "BIT" (Barista in Training, the company's starting position). Company has winced raised starting wage to $12/hr tipped.
0Still work there
$12.50/hr plus tips.
Part-time
Health Insurance and MetroCard help, but benefits are very opaque, I don't know how one qualifies and I don't know anyone who uses them.
290 (busy season)
We are underpaid, and our shifts are all scheduled to keep us *just* as part time employees.

10/9/2019 16:29:31Joe coffee company Educator 2015113Left in 2019145-10 in cash daily Full-time
Very expensive health insurance that did not include mental health coverage. Also included dental and vision. No PTO even after four years.
60-120 depending
refused to give me a raise or performance review in the four years I worked for them despite performing duties that were asked of me outside of my job description. Cut my shifts during slow season and I was forced to find a new job or “try and find shifts to cover”

Discounted health insurance premium, sick pay (which is not a benefit but they sure make a big deal of offering it), free tele-counseling services, free weekly yoga, OK I’m stretching here
Around an extra $7-9/hr

Starting pay was $11/hr raised to $12 after being approved to work on bar, though this raise often took a while to actually get processed. Other raises were based on who asked for one. Generally a good company to work for.

The $500/month for health insurance stipend was an agreement for me between myself and ownership. I only get ripped out when I’m on the floor for the entire shift.
