Welcome to the Employment Application for Empire Tea & Coffee
We heard you are interested in working at Empire Tea & Coffee...

Thank you for your interest in working at Empire Tea & Coffee.  We opened our doors at our first cafe in downtown Newport over 10 years ago with a goal of creating a community coffee shop.

Since then we've expanded our first location to become the largest coffee shop in Rhode Island with over 5,000 feet of seating, performance and meeting space.  In 2012, 2014, 2015 & 2016 we added to our growing list of local and statewide awards with "Best Coffeehouse in Newport County" in Rhode Island Magazine. 
Over the years we've met a lot of awesome people, learned how to make great drinks and have had a lot of fun.  We hope you can come along.
We behold a core set of values

Integrity - Do the right thing when no one is watching. You will often be working alongside other baristas, but sometimes on your own. Have the integrity not to take short cuts, and do the honorable thing even when no one else is there to implement it. 

Community -  We are community oriented. Empire is constantly giving back to the community; the same community that is loyal to us on a year round basis. 

Customer Service - We are first and foremost customer service oriented. Our customers are the reason we all have jobs, and they are passionate about what we do. Be just as passionate about it as them, and do it with a smile! 

Respect - Have respect for your customers who may not have the same opinions as you. Do not engage in inappropriate conversations or political conversations while at work and where customers can hear you. Also have respect for your co-workers and their privacy by obeying the privacy policy.
