Sweetwaters baristas are paid $9.45 starting. $9.75 for Team Leaders (shift supervisors) and $10 for Senior Team Leaders at my store (it's a franchise so other stores may operate differently). Credit card tips vary widely, from $1.50-$3.80/hr between the stores I've worked at.

We have a uniform: shirt and apron. The apron is included (returned when you stop working there), we get one free shirt when we start and any others are deducted from payroll.

Overtime is paid if someone works over 80 hours in the 2-week pay period.
