    I worked at Costa full-time

    Pros

    I met some of my best friends working at costa, training on the job which is great, supporting team.

    Cons

    It's hard work and physical work, sometimes long hours. Had a few experiences with bad bosses but 95% of the people I worked with were lovely and we still keep in touch many years on!

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible, I understand its stressful running a shop but people need lives outside of work!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Costa.

    Interview

    The interview was very informal, the interviewer didn't as me a single question. I was then told I didn't get the job as I didn't have barista experience however I have been working as a barista for a year, she just never asked me anything to know this
