I worked at Starbucks full-time (More than a year)
routine raises, easy work, potential opportunities
it is very common practice within starbucks management to use the promise of a promotion to pass off the most difficult or unpleasant projects onto people trying to advance their careers. I had many coworkers who dedicated an average of 10 years to the company, and yet when they sought advancement within the company, they were jerked around and told over and over again "do this first, and then we will promote you" over and over until many of them finally got sick of it and left the company.
Advice to Management
Advice to workers seeking promotion: stand up for yourself. the management methods are slimy and it is very common for them to squeeze as much work out of you as they can without actually coming through with the promised rewards. BUT if you firmly tell your manager that you deserve the promotion, and are ready, and your reviews have been good, and REFUSE to take on "do this first" projects, they won't fight you. They only take advantage of people who let them. however, if you want to advance within the company, be prepared to have to jerk people around yourself. it's just the way they do things.
