I have been working at Starbucks part-time (more than a year)

Pros

Flexibility; great atmosphere; good coffee; lots of chances to learn; benefits even for part time employees; a company that cares about sourcing ethically coffee; a company that treats its workers with respect; recognizes excellence in job performance and customer service, and provides opportunities for advancement.

Cons

Shifts can be tough, it can be difficult to remain composed while dealing with dozens of customers, expectations are very high for store sanitation and cleanliness, there is a high turnover rate - have to adjust to new coworkers regularly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide more incentives for lower level employees - promote more rapidly.

    I worked at Starbucks full-time

    Pros

    Great people, great customers, highly engaging, and fast-paced environment. As a Starbucks store manager, I played the roles of manager, coach, mentor, trainer, brand ambassador, and entrepreneur.

    Cons

    The best thing about working for Starbucks also is the worst thing. There is never a break. In order to be truly successful, you have got to commit to, and fully engage in, everything that you do. As a leader of a team of people and an individual solely responsible for the success of your store, you are asked to approach your role with the mindset of a business owner. It is a truly rewarding role to play, however, at the end of the day you may put in the hours of a business owner, but still receive the corporately structured compensation package of an individual store manager. It is easy to overwork yourself and get burnt out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just because it is possible to constantly do more with less, doesn't mean it's a sustainable approach.
