    I have been working at Teavana full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very sales focused. This company will teach you a lot about multitasking, working with other staff, sales, organization, etc. Offers great health benefits, small commission opportunities, and a very strict sales process to follow so that you don't have to think for yourself.

    Cons

    The management structure is very disorganized. In a company that prides itself on structure, reliability, and consistency, there is absolutely NONE of this when it comes to upper management. Area Managers are running anywhere from 5 to 12 stores in an area, and can be stretched very thin, sometimes spanning areas that are quite large.
    You will receive very conflicting advice from day to day and very rarely receive praise as there is always something else that isn't up to standards.
    This company is very focused on saving every dollar and will stand in the way of promotions, yearly raises, reviews, etc. You will also be expected as a manager to make your own budget for payroll and stay under it weekly - which is not typical of someone making barely above minimum wage in a retail establishment.

    The only reason I can see someone wanting to work for minimum wage in a very strict setting with such high pressure sales would be the health benefits or the discounts on tea.

    The health benefits are only for 20+ hours weekly though, and good luck with that as this company maintains around 15+ staff with about 1 shift weekly for each staff member.
