Worst place to work for.
Wage is minimum no matter how many years you work there, but prices goes up twice a year. Bearly get your breaks which is unpaid. Managment has no professiolism at all in their roles. More cleaners then baristas. If not finished work on time have to stay longer till finished but not getting paid for it. Staff is mistreated and it keeps changing so often. HR doesn't care about any of the issues rised. Not recommending to anybody to work there, they'll peel your skin of you.

Long hours, too much work, stressful enviroment
I only took the job as a part time during covid. However my PT hours are 35 a week. The job is very stressful and thres work overload on each individual. You are pushed to sell extras however you have nothing from it. Customers are extrenely rude and manager does anything about it. Theres too many impossible standards you must do and emails about what was done wrong just keep comimg. If the store target isnt met the hours are cut and staff laid off. Also after closing you have to clean everything and do everything and you usually stay 20mins longer which you dont get paid for. The only thing you dont do is that you dont bake the cakes. The worst job I ve ever had ! The break area is shocking and also only 30mins break on 8,5-9h shift.

Nice people work for costa but are treated poorly
The only real positive I had was the people I worked with. Other than that You are on a terrible 3 hour contract and if you are very good at your job and work hard you are not rewarded. I was up for team leader 2 times in my year there and was passed up and when I requested a better full time contract they refused. You would worry constantly if you would get enough hours to afford your rent. Also you are always paid monthly regardless of your hours or position. Part-time or manager which I found ridiculous. Upper management are Overly strict on how the store is run and would micro manage every single detail. No creativity aloud. Managers have to run absolutely everything by head office and makes getting anything done frustrating and demeaning. I would not recommend anyone to work for them as they simply do not care about their employees one bit.

I worked in cost coffee for 2 years and I wish I left sooner. Where I was anyway it wasn’t good and the head office take no action what so ever on anything happening in the store. Don’t let a manager step all over you when half of the costa coffee managers don’t even know how to make coffee.
