Working in JAWAD group was more than just a work relationship

Has been a growing company ever since... I was valued more than a staff, valued as a part of a family. I was able to inspire people working with me. Earned trust and big expectations on my shoulder as a performing Store Manager. Standards were followed and been cascaded to rank and file staffs, mid management and top management. Most enjoyable part is when you perform at your best, being YOU, with no pretensions, just mere YOU. Delivering great service that guests will never forget and always looking forward to meet you and see you again!

Pros

free coffee on duty, free meal on duty, staff discounts etc.

Cons

short of staffs

Amazing Experience

Working at Costa is an amazing experience and the daily challenges make more fun and worthwhile. Everyday is a new day with new learnings. Meeting new customers every day and the demands of the new customers make it satisfactory when demands are met. External competition make the life in coffee shop more interesting as new players emerge with new and better ideas so you have to always be on your toes.

Pros

Free coffees

productive and fun with get togethers

Intensive and rigorous trainings makes it a good learning platform, Growth for staff is rapid depending on your initiative. Job pressure is intense though its a good way to mould individuals.

Fun & Productive

I learned how to value my time and be more productive in every training or task that is given to me. be more disciplined and have a proper time management and planning in this company. I've learned how to be more knowledgeable and apply all the training techniques that I learned from my co-trainers. Proper decision making has been added to my skills as well as a part of management team. most enjoyable part of my job is seeing my people learn and grow from my knowledge.

Cons

Local leaves, healthcare, incentives

A workplace that make you flexible, wiser and smarter

I don't have any experience in coffee making, and it was my first time to work abroad, then it change everything for just a week or so. I saw myself making cups of coffee, doing reports and counting money, it was a fast learning experience I been through in Costa. One should be strong, as you have to work in the store alone, one should be wise and smart ad you have to deal with different transactions, one should be flexible as you have to do things in the fastest way you could, one should be friendly as you are dealing with different guests daily and you have to train new joiners and one should have leadership goals as you will guide new joiners to be a strong barista as you are, you have to manage everything in the store, organization stocks and that's what made you aneed efficient and productive employee.

Pros

staffs drinks, 50% discount on food items

Cons

30 minutes break

Pros

Free transportation and accommodation. With incentives

Cons

Race discrimination.

job is ok

worst management especially HR, does not take care of the worker's over all welfare. And they do not know how to do a better planning in terms of staffing.
