I just started laboring at a coffee shop and I am definitely enjoying the environment so far.
The people that come in are super friendly and relaxed, and my co-workers are all definitely helpful and knowledgeable.
Even though it’s a current environment for me, I assume quite comfortable there. One reason for my comfort is that the air conditioning is always perfect. I am anemic and have always been sensitive to air conditioning, so being in a place with optimal temperature is always scarce for me. I definitely believe that seventy-five degrees is the perfect temperature for a coffee shop, and that’s what all of us keep the temperature control at. Fluctuating the temperature control too often can be challenging for the Heating and A/C to keep up with, especially because the front door opens and closes so often throughout the morning. For this reason, I believe that keeping the temperature control at seventy-five usually maintains the balance between cool air and humidity with the outdoor temperature always flooding in. Depending on the weather outside, the temperature control will show some changes throughout the morning that can’t always be helped, good thing the shop owner has a SMART temperature control so all of us can monitor it and make adjustments even if he isn’t there. I know that the temperature control is just a single small section of the experience that makes it a comfortable work environment though. I think I just appreciate being around real and authentic people. My last work environment had a lot of toxic positivity and people who had no interest in others but themselves. It’s fine to be a section of a community that likes to give back.
