When it comes to scheduling baristas, coffee houses have unique challenges. The coffee business is made up of extended hours, high seasons and a variety of job positions to schedule and shifts to cover. Coffee house managers are usually given labor budgets (payroll dollars) that generally vary from week to week as store sales fluctuate. Union and FLSA rules may place restrictions on work hours, overtime compensation, and the types of work schedules that can be implemented. Coffee shop managers must also consider time-off requests, school schedules, and personnel availabilities when developing schedules for full-time and part-time workers.
