Debates over which coffee chains make the best coffee and pastriesnever seems to cease, but how much do we know about the experiences of the people serving them? Have you ever stopped to think about how employees fare at your favorite chain? We have, and we decided to look into it.
In order to find which coffee chains in America value their employees most, we considered a number of things: employee discounts and perks, health benefits and insurance packages, vacation time and flexibility of hours, and finally, company culture. We would have factored in pay, but most chains pay the same thing: minimum wage where they're located.
