it has its ups and downs

Barista (Former Employee)
Gaithersburg, MD

Prosgreat customers, fun employees, learn lots of experience, free beverages while working, benefits are pretty good. high cleaning standards... usually.

Conscompany's mission statements are a lie, company is hypocritical, some corrupt employees, favoritism even with illegal activity so dont try to report anything bc you will get fired for it. they prefer liars and thieves. but some stores i am sure are different. my old store use to be great, until an unprofessional store manager was hired. manipulative, emotionally and mentally unstable. smh
oh and you gain tons of weight while employed. i lost of 25 pounds when i left after working there for 4.5 years. food and drinks are very unhealthy.

Advice to Senior Managementhave higher standards for the people you hire. maybe you should stop hiring outside the company. what is the point of offering growth if you dont allow anyone to grow and instead you hire unfit people outside the company. sucks bc a few bad apples ruined my love for starbucks.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Fast paced environment, unorganized stock rooms and business processes, rude customers.
