I worked at Starbucks

Pros

It has good benefits for this type of job, hours are (somewhat) flexible and nonstandard, for those who are into that. You also get some good perks (free drinks!)

Cons

There's a lot of red tape. It also really depends on what store you work at -- some are better than others. The pay is ok for part time but not really for a full time job.

    I have been working at Starbucks

    Pros

    Benefits are amazing (way better compared to others).
    Job is fun!
    Fast-paced. (makes the day fly by)
    Never bored (when you finally get a break from customers you are running to stock and clean)

    Cons

    Very high expectations from management for the pay you receive.
    Don't expect management to praise you.
    Grow thick skin because customers can be extremely rude!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start sucking up early!
    Don't let the pay hold you back from being the very best you can be because you won't excel.
