In China, it refers to any study, learning, or practice that requires patience, energy, and time to complete.

Barista/Cashier (Former Employee) says

"One of the worst places I worked. They have favorites and treat the ones they dislike poorly. They always watch if you make one mistake so they can scold and find a reason to fire you."

Barista (Former Employee) says

"Very poor management and racist in my location, if you aren’t asian you’ll probably be fired. The Manager also had poor communication. Not recommended"

Barista/Cashier (Former Employee) says

"This job asks a lot of their workers, scheduling part-time workers daily and giving them the hard work (cashier, making teas, and restock). There is absolutely no management, when you work here you are basically being judged by the staff and can be fired if they do not like you. They burn through staff quickly and rarely hold on to a trainee for long enough for them to actually advance which is why they are always hiring. Cons: No management, over worked trainees, no room for advancing"

Barista/Cashier (Former Employee) says

"the most unprofessional establishment I ever worked for they'll work you like a dog for below minimum wage and pay you off the books to avoid taxes, no pto or sick leave, had multiple issues with management who run the franchise not according to KF tea standard and do whats best for them while disregarding their employees needs to align with their personal benefit, wouldnt recommend anyone to work here"

Barista (Former Employee) says

"Learned how to manage time to take and make orders if working alone. Learned how to handle multiple customers and orders in a fast-paced environment. Management can be more professional."

Barista (Former Employee) says

"management is not as helpful or on time to work as they should have been. fruit fly problem, and slow work pace, i worked in the kitchen for the majority of my time there and did not really branch out to more things in the shop. no break times but discounted food and drinks."

Barista/Cashier (Former Employee) says

"This job would be perfect for a high schooler or bored college student. You gotta memorize recipes before clocking in, or else your shift will just be a hot stressful mess. Cons: Unwelcoming Environment"

Barista (Former Employee) says

"As a Barista, you are required to memorize the recipes of all drinks which can be quite stressful but manageable. In addition to memorizing recipes and making drinks, you must also work the cash register, pack drinks, and clean the dishes and workspace. The amount of work can be a lot at times with the number of customers coming in and out, but once again it is manageable. The management on the other hand is unpleasant. The weekly schedule would be sent out at unpredictable times during the weekend making you wonder when you would have to work that week. Also, management would either take a long time to respond to emails or not respond at all. The communication between the employees and management is lacking and barely there. They do not even tell you where you are supposed to contact them, so reaching them was always confusing because of the uncertainty of where your email was going to. I have been employed at Kung Fu Tea for almost a month now and have worked five days and a total of 20 hours, but have NOT RECEIVED ANY PAY since the time I started working there despite them telling me that I would be paid biweekly. The other employees are professional and fun though. They are usually there to guide you while you are training and help you understand the different skills you need in order to make a drink. The hardest part of the job was contacting management and memorizing the recipes since there were many numbers to remember. The most enjoyable part was the actual creation of the drinks since it is fun to mix ingredients together and to use the shaker. I was not given the respect Cons: Management was not helpful and unpredictabie."

Barista/Cashier (Former Employee) says

"Boss was cheap and the older workers were super sensitive and condescending. I worked hard and got no recognition or simply a hello. Don't work here unless you're a college student and broke."

Team Member (Former Employee) says

"This Kung Fu Tea location is lacking in good management. The training process in order to make drinks takes around 4-6 months to complete, since training is only allowed in the presence of management, and management is never there. This becomes an issue for the team, because nobody is able to progress over a long period of time.There were also many building problems including leaks, flooding, and broken sinks. This establishment does not follow proper healthcare sanitation methods, and trains employees on what to say if ever faced with inspection. Another issue with this establishment was their unsafe temperatures. Air conditioning was out during the summer, and temperatures reached unsafe conditions in the morning when preparing. Management at this location does not pay overtime. Management only paid employees regular pay for overtime hours through another method of payment so the hours were not calculated. Does not allow paid time off or sick time for full time employees. Unfair evaluation methods using only peer reviews due to no management presence to properly evaluate employees. The only thing that made this place great was the team. They have a great team that is very inviting and fun to work with. Cons: Unsanitary, unfair wages, poor working conditions, slow training period"

Barista/Team Member (Former Employee) says

"i had a lot of problems overall in my experience. i initially enjoyed the job, and thought it was fast paced and fun. however, things quickly changed and I started becoming stressed and unable to balance my life with work. the management is so unpleasant... everything from their unethical practices of not giving us tips, to their unwelcoming and weird communication systems. I was paid significantly less than my coworkers for the same, under the same circumstances. it was NOT fair at all for me to be paid so little compared to the others, and once I brought it up to them, management did not care and lied to me. there is little to no structure, poor communication, and lack of care for livelihood of their few hardworking employees. They routinely took advantage of my work and did not compensate me legally or properly. There is no room for growth whatsoever, and they are so understaffed, it’s impossible to find a cover. It was a good experience as a first job for overall, awful, so I quit. Cons: management is so unpleasant."

assistant (Former Employee) says

"Me and one other coworker was the only colored peoples there. There was mostly Asians. The benefits were unfair and not everyone was bad. They way they gave people higher raises when they didn't work as long and another person was unfair. They also placed favortizim in the store. where others can get free drinks while when I tried I so happened to get in trouble. Cons: always cleaning uo after coworkers, got in toruble for things that others didnt do, favorites in the store, unfair with how they give raises"

tea maker (Former Employee) says

"it's really lack of rule and management. you can do really casual. there is no punishment. sad, there is also no rewards . you can do it depend on your mood Cons: low salary"

Barista and Cashier (Former Employee) says

"Very poor mamnagement at my location. However, every location may be different. Overall, I enjoy my coworkers and environment but very poor management from my boss. Cons: Poor management"

Barista (Current Employee) says

"This job is relaxed and easy as long as you are a quick learner. Learning the recipes are easy and get easier the more you make them. Customer service is not taught here so you would have to adapt to give better service if you want tips. Cons: low pay, sometimes boring"

Barista (Former Employee) says

"Fast paced and somewhat stressful if you are not used to it. Multitasking is a super good skill to have and being able to planned ahead and think what could happen so you can take precautions to avoid it."

Shift Leader (Current Employee) says

"Get to work at 11:45 to open the store by 12pm. I have to make sure all the necessary ingredients and toppings are out front and tea/boba is made on time. Cons: No breaks (unless you work a 11hr day), no training program, no insurance/healthcare, no paid days off, no sick leave"

Cashier (Former Employee) says

"The mangers are pretty nice. It was a kind of chill work place because we get to choose the music we play at work and when its slow its relaxing but when its busy it can get pretty hectic and stressful."

Barista (Former Employee) says

"there was poor management at the location that i worked and the management was quite poor i wasnt a fan of the managemenr for this reason it was quite poor Cons: okay pay/ hours"

Barista / Cashier / Barback (Current Employee) says

"its competitive hours and the boss plays by favorites. He has a different set up for training but you start right away. benefits are free medium drink but to an extent."
