A Dichotomy

Starbucks Barista (Former Employee)
Evergreen, CO

ProsI met some really great people there, and it was a good way to get to know people in my small town better. I also learned a lot about how a corporate company really works...

ConsThe union was a joke, my job did not receive the benefits it was supposed to, the store was generally understaffed and unresponsive to customer's needs, and dealing with management was a nightmare unless you had the right manager. I also worked full-time hours but was given 1 hour short so they did not have to give me benefits.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease hire store managers who are approachable, reasonable, and civil, as well as knowledgeable as to how to do their job successfully.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
