      Free lunch, free hot beverages, part paid breaks, HR are approachable. In my own experience, I was given the full time hours I requested in my interview, and work with a great team. There are plenty of progression opportunities, also

      Don't really have any cons, to be honest. I work with a good team of people, and I've found my time at Insomnia rewarding.

      I have been working at Insomnia Coffee Company full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The team usually is the best part of working in Insomnia. You also can have all the hot drinks that you want for free.

      Cons

      Very few opportunities to promote. The salary is minimum wage. The worst thing are the breaks, which are very short and sometimes if you are busy you can not have a full break, because your colleague is alone with a massive qeue.

      Advice to Management

      Hire more people, the staff is overwhelmed.
