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

Pros

Customers, Friendly Co-Workers (for the most part)

Cons

Customers, Retail, Managment (at least my store)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I'm sure corporate is fine, but they need to do better with store managers and District managers. Better communication would be a good step.

    I have been working at Starbucks part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits for only working 20 hours a week, decent tips at most stores, free pound of coffee every week, the opportunity to advance in store management if desired

    Cons

    Some demanding customers, some clueless customers, often incompetent upper management, advancement requires some unnecessary training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lose the positivity act, be real with store workers, and hire better middle managers with actual interpersonal skills
