Re: “How Peet's Starbucked Itself

I just want to pitch in my two cents and say I completely agree with the article. Peet's has changed for the worse over the past few years. I have seen the stress level rise to the point that shift leads are in tears almost every shift. This was a fun, challenging and rewarding job. Now it seems like not only we can never please the demanding management, we don't get paid anywhere near the living wage but we are forced to "volunteer" and work off the clock as well, since not enough time is provided to complete tasks and you get written up if you go into overtime. I know that all the Peetniks at my store would agree.
