    Former Shift supervisor in Chesterfield, Missouri

    It's good coverage as well as affordable. Comparable to Pfizer pharmaceuticals benefits package but cost less

    Former Shift Supervisor in Cleveland, Ohio

    20 hrs/wk qualifies employees for eligibility (awesome). Great, affordable medical, dental, and vision offered (vision is like $4/month). Employee discount and also free beverages 30 min prior, through shift, and 30 min after.

    Great insurance for part time.

    Former Barista in Plano, Texas

    Starbucks offers a comprehensive benefits package and their salaries are higher than the national average in retail services.

  • Dec 7, 2014
    Current Barista in Richmond, Virginia

    Great benefits - from free coffee, free college, and excellent and affordable healthcare plans.

  • Dec 6, 2014
    Current Barista in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

    Best - Vision, Dental and Medical are all given
    Worst - its not free and can get costly taking from pay check

  • Dec 3, 2014
    Former Barista in Katy, Texas

    Great Benefits! Especially if you're a student, not sure how it works with dependents.

  • Dec 2, 2014
    Former Shift Supervisor in Charlottesville, Virginia

    Best: When I worked there, you only had to work an average of 20 hours per week to receive subsidized health insurance (you still paid for insurance, but you get it at a discounted rate ie $60/pay period)
    Worst: You have to work there for a long time before you can cash out the 401K and stock benefits that you earned.

    Former Shift Supervisor in Lake Bluff, Illinois

    No paid sick leave and vacation hours used to accrue from the date of employment, and now don't begin until you've been with the company for an entire year.

    Former Store Manager in Chicago, Illinois

    Outdated benefits package needs to be updated.
