    I worked at Costa Coffee part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great team environment. Also a good place to work with customer focus. Management really cared about the store that I worked in.

    Cons

    Understaffed at busy times. Sometimes felt like you couldn't give the best customer experience because there weren't enough staff on.

    Advice to Management

    Just to ensure that it is always well staffed.
