I have been working at Starbucks

Pros

Great fair treatment and inclusive workplace. Good advancement opportunities and executive direction and communication. Benefits available through Manulife group benefits.

Cons

Staffing system doesn't provide enough labor. All tasks required can't be done at a regular pace. Burn-out is common especially among retail management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow for more labor at a retail level. Customers often view storyes as understaffed when the system says they're not.

    I worked at Starbucks

    Pros

    Benefits were great, free beverages were awesome, also a good environment. You always seem to meet some good friends there.

    Cons

    Communication is not that clear, I've had great bosses and horrible bosses, rules seem to change every couple of months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate with your employees, be a strong unselfish leader, and remember that if the job is getting done, calm down, people are aloud to have fun at a coffee shop.

    I worked at Starbucks

    Pros

    Pay good, some good people to work with, easy concept to manage and understand ( it is only coffee!!!), continues to grow

    Cons

    Too much red tape, heavy hand by senior leadership, biased reviews, no concept of work-life balance, non retail employees aren't given a long learning curve

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More team building, better understanding of work-life balance, workload is very heavy, change performance reviews from so subjective, get rid of the red tape, value the long term partners

    Doesn't Recommend
