    The Best thing is that benefits are offered to both you and a domestic partner. The medical benefits are fantastic, reasonable copays and since it's Blue Shield you're accepted anywhere.

    Starbucks is one of the leading companies for benefits/packages. The best one is the health insurance and almost every person I worked with was working there just because of the insurance that they offered. VERY cheap per check and you were getting a lot out of it! They recognize that it's NOT easy work and they grant you great benefits/compensations. Most places you have to work 35 hours to get health insurance but here you only have to work 20 hours.

    Great benefits like free pound of coffee a week

    One of the only companies that offer full-time benefits for hourly employees that maintain an average of 20+ hours a week. Perfect if you're a parent or student that needs insurance. Company stock program is an added bonus. Company "gifts" a number of stocks to you every year, and are available for withdrawal or continuous growth.

    Great benefits, weekly markout, weekly tips, 401k, education discounts/free classes with either Strayer University, Phoenix University. Paid vacation and paid Sick pay.

    The fact that you can have free drinks while you're working is awesome, and so is the free coffee product (K-cups, 1 lb beans, via instant coffee, etc.) every week, however, I think Starbucks could suck it up and offer a better discount than 30% to employees. Though they offer health, vision, and dental insurance to both full and part-time employees, it isn't the best insurance out there. The copay's are still pretty steep. The greatest thing, I think, they have going for them currently is the partnership with ASU and the tuition assistance for their online courses. It's above and beyond what I've seen other companies do to help their employees achieve degrees.

    Great health and dental. Vision care is through VSP and is very basic.

    The benefits package seem good as described. I am not eligible yet, so cannot comment more fully.
