I worked at Starbucks full-time (less than a year)Pros
-Free pound of coffee, instant VIA, or Tazo tea tin per week.
-Pretty fun coworkers
-Balance between work and life was pretty good, had an easy time scheduling around other life expectationsCons
-Ridiculous sales expectation from management.
-Disgustingly entitled customers and customer culture.
-No consistency. The rules you follow depend on who's shift at the time, whether the manager is in or not, who you're working with; it's ridiculous and made both employees AND customers confused.
-Company seems to be going toward Pizza Hut levels....before I left they were starting to hire high school kids and recent grads for less than 8 dollars an hour, which I never even heard about Starbucks doing.
-Women at the store I worked at got hired for 5 cents less than the men did (Knew this because a shift pointed it out to our manager when he was checking employee records, nothing was ever done about this).Advice to ManagementAdvice
Hiring high schoolers at less than 8 dollars an hour, putting them on priority over more experienced candidates tells me you're aiming for Pizza Hut and Papa John's level of being cheapskates; you think that you'll save money by hiring cheap labor, don't know why you need to save any money when Starbucks makes bank. You'd better reverse this trend 'cause you'll be losing your customer base of hipsters.Doesn't RecommendPositive OutlookDisapproves of CEO
