Great place to work
So far working at Bear I have really enjoyed how they have managed to balance specific and more in depth training with on the job work experience to make each day interesting and productive. I particularly like the varied working hours that I have received so far as it has allowed me to experience both quieter and busier periods and therefore do a variety of different tasks to suit this. Straight away I felt like a part of the team and would feel comfortable discussing any issues with management. Already they have been really helpful at accommodating my other job's requirements so that I am able to work in both places comfortably. Bear is a really sociable place to work, I enjoy speaking to both customers and colleges on a daily basis. Being able to have conversations helps to keep the day interesting and it's nice when you start to see familiar faces.

Ha!
If I could give 0 stars, I would. Management are two faced and the head office crew have no idea how to treat staff and hold on to them. The head of food actually uses the Caravan (small chain in London) cookbook for his recipes and menu writing because he's obsessed. If you want bears shakshuka.. it's in that book. If you're two faced, back stabbing and love a gossip, you'll go far with them. If you're a genuine hard worker, it will be a different story for you.

Fast paced, fun-loving job!
BEAR is a unique job with an awesome environment with consistently positive vibes, great work/ management relationships and the best coffee at the heart of everything you do. The management team at BEAR is very hands on and always looking out for progression opportunities for the staff; if I have any issues at work i'd feel completely comfortable talking to anyone from a supervisor to the store manager. The job is very different from a typical 9-5 but it comes with the chance of lots of interaction with guests; lots of moving around & constantly learning new things! There's no typical day at BEAR which I think is the most enjoyable part of the job.

The Dream Job
A particularity relaxed, modern, and enjoyable place to work. Incredibly forward thinking and very considerate of a work/life balance. Bear's willingness to invest in the future of their people and develop them within and outside of the industry is unrivalled. A close knit team of driven managers, supervisors, baristas and team members makes work an extension of your family.

Great chance for progression and an amazing team
If you're looking for 9-5, hospitality isn't for you. However, if you're looking to be a part of an amazing team, to work hard and be rewarded, or gain support and training in customer service and the service of speciality coffee BEAR is definitely the place to do it. A typical day doesn't really exist, one day you could be up at 6 A.M to open the store and the next you might not be home gone midnight. However, no matter the shift, you're going to be surrounded by a supportive team and get to know some lovely regulars. As assistant manager, you can expect to open or close the store most days, run shifts, manage your team, take responsibility for cash handling and the customer experience all while fitting in admin jobs such as placing orders, writing reports and working through invoices. It can seem like a lot to pick up in a short amount of time but it means the job is never boring.
