i'm sorry. first of all, it's got great coffee, and WIFI, and good snacks. the kids that work there are fun.
the management is twisted. the owner accosted me for having my foot up on a chair. he treated me as an inferior, saying that "he doesn't care where i am, but you don't do that anywhere. people have to sit on that seat." i scoffed him off, because, though he's right about, he came up to me and treated me like his child, like an inferior. so, watch out; if you're doing something wrong in Mike's point of view, you may recieve a public execution for it (yes, he was loud and obnoxious, and everyone around was staring at him and i). i've also heard that this is common, from the baristas - oh, and the turnover is ridiculous. but the yuppies keep on going back! but i do know that almost 100% of the staff at joe's espresso are former vic's employees - including joe!
other possibly incriminating things i have heard about the management:
+sexual harrassment from mike (boss),
+cheating on taxes (using different business names in different towns to keep a low tax bracket or something like that)
+not offerring health insurance to this girl who was full time who had a kid and had been there for a long time, but offering it to other people who had been there just as long as she had. i heard it was because "she wasn't working hard enough".
+firing people because "he doesn't like them"
i really can't stand underdeveloped arrogant babies in leadership positions. big personal no-no - and especially in a town like boulder. so, i'm never going to vics again. or vic's again again.
