    I have been working at Starbucks full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, free coffee, fairly flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    Ridiculously rude customers, to which we MUST employ the "just say yes" policy, as our pride is being stripped away little by little. Long days/nights of scrubbing, stocking, ringing, and prepping all while having to remain understaffed. Sometimes the store manager can ruin your experience, and never be reprimanded. Sometimes the district manager will set unreasonable goals, and as a shift lead, you CAN still get in trouble for things you're NOT PAID enough to care about. Raises are biannual and usually only 20-25 cents, as managers receive larger bonuses if they give smaller raises. Having to depend on your team can backfire when consistency isn't upheld by management. Be prepared to break your back, swallow your self worth, and sell your soul. It's not just coffee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fellow leads: stop gossiping and work harder; set up your other leads. Store managers: you are nothing without your loyal crew. DMs and beyond: remember what it was like to work in retail? I mean, REALLY work? Please do try. Baristas need encouragement too.

    I worked at Starbucks full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great communication from corporate; many helpful avenues of support for struggling partners; tips weekly; benefits; coworkers are often amazing people

    Cons

    Hard to advance; when there are issues that involve problems with multiple partners they are often not solved to mutual satisfaction; SOME upper management power/control issues; forced to receive abuse from customers; bad behavior is often rewarded both that of customers and partners; when you are an entry level employee benefits are difficult to afford;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please keep a better eye on your district managers/ allow employees to anonymously report behavior that is not in line with company ethos without fear of retaliation
