Pros

Starbucks is a great place to work because of their benefits, work culture, customers, and flexibility in scheduling. It's very easy to get promoted so long as you work hard.

Cons

Unfortunately, the management can and will eventually treat you like your disposable, especially when you make it a point to voice your concerns and you've given them your absolute best.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop treating your employees like crap.

    I worked at Starbucks full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, 90% of employees are awesome people, depending on manager opportunity to move up to entry-level management positions.

    Cons

    Out of touch upper management (DM, RM, etc.), too much work for too little pay, strange and bizarre expectations placed upon low-level workers (treat it like you own it... REALLY??? You expect minimum wage, overworked employees to do this??). Management is oddly manipulative and not very good at manipulation. Only one of the five store managers I worked with was good, and he was outstanding, a very hard worker who held people accountable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't know how to fix this, but there are just too many managers in the upper-level. This literally happened - A regional manager asked a district manager who asked a store manager to ask me (shift supervisor) if a sandwich had cooked long enough. I was about two feet away from ALL of them. That is a bloated and inefficient management model if you ask me.

    Pros

    great benefits and good product...most of the time

    Cons

    horrible training model, unlike the past..it used to be a company that thrived on education excellence. Slowly but surely the company is ripping away labor hours while piling on more unnecessary work. paralasys by analysis seems to be there motto these days

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be more encouraging...be a leader and a manager...not just a manager..this is geared more to the upper management..DM's Regional directors.
