    I have been working at Starbucks

    Pros

    The best reasons to work at Starbucks include full benefits for part-time employees, a 401K option with matching, stock options, free coffee during a shift, a 30% discount for all other visits and 40% during the winter holidays, 1lb. coffee or tea or chai concentrate for free every week, flexible hours, a fun and fast-paced work environment....

    Cons

    Store managers can easily use their position to harass their hourly employees. Unfortunately, Starbucks does not require management to come from the Barista level, instead giving them something more like a crash course in coffee and sending them out. Sometimes candidates for this position are overly stressed and inept at their job. Additionally, it is easy for existing managers to promote inappropriately... so sometimes people move up when they're really not ready. Also, the policy for time off states that all time requests are exactly that, so you can't expect not to be scheduled when you let management know you're unavailable. Furthermore, when you can't make it in for whatever reason you cannot simply 'call in'; you have to get the shift covered by calling around to co-workers and other stores. You can see how this is stressful if you request time off two weeks in advance and can't find someone to cover the shift that your manager gives you anyway...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Happy employees = happy workplace = happy customers. Treat others as you'd like to be treated.
