If you’re already a remote worker, you’re living the dream that most employees long for in their fluorescent-lit office. You’re the envy of the workforce, because you’re free to choose what you’re working on, who you’re working for, where you’re working from, and when you’re working.
Working in this type of industry, you’re taught to always listen to the customer. They’re always right with no exceptions. Yet, in my experience working at Trader Joe’s, I've discovered that’s a huge pile of donkey diarrhea mixed in with prostitute vomit.
Young employees now care about other things besides a 401k and traditional employee benefits. They are looking for an employer who goes above and beyond and who understands that their lifestyle and goals are not the same as they were for older generations, such as baby boomers.
Imagine you’re one of those fancy-pants Fine Arts students over at Art School. You’re a genuinely fine painter, exquisite at drawing, and a master of the socio-political histories that made your art forms what they are today.

As a former barista, I can say that I have learned a lot about people in general. There’s a lot of people-watching, unpleasant interactions, and every now and then, surprising friendships. I’ve learned to take the good with the bad and have lots of ridiculous stories, but here are just a few problems I’ve encountered being a coffee wizard:
The way global business is conducted nowadays has given rise to a trend of working from home. The web and the papers are full of articles on how to set up a home office, listing privacy, and the ability to work at peace as some of the greatest advantages of working from home. Cubicle walls have pretty much the same role, since it seems that the golden goose of the workspace is peace and quiet.

“Getting into the real world” often times can mean one thing—getting into work or a job as an employee. The truth is being an employee is, considerably, one of the most challenging roles that one will ever play in a lifetime.

We have all had one, or more; that boss you just can't stand, the micromanaging, ass riding, disrespectful person that gets to dictate exactly how you do your job. Even if they themselves have never done it. The one who calls all the shots, gets all the credit, gets paid more than you, and yet is really, just kind of an asshole. My experience, mostly in an industrial workplace setting, is that bad workplace culture, and interactions tend to drive down morale. Which in turn, drives down production, which for a company, drives down profits, and increases turnover rate faster than a fast food place spits out burgers. It is the most neglected aspect in a lot of workplaces, but in my opinion, the most important.

This will help in making the business more successful by making the processes more productive.
