Good company to work for

Barista (Former Employee)
Rocklin, CA

ProsI think that Starbucks is a good company to work for because they care about their employees. It was voted one of Fortune 500's best companies to work for in 2008 because of the benefits they give to their employees. The work is hard sometimes but the the store I work for fosters an atmosphere of trust and respect most of the time.

ConsThe customers at the Bucks are probably the worst part. There are those people who are real pains in the butt and don't care how they treat you, as long as they get their daily caffeine fix. Granted there are bad customers in any business you work in, but for some reason out of all the places I have worked (5 total) the Starbucks customers seemed to be the worst.

Advice to Senior ManagementThat, contrary to popular belief, sometimes employees are more important than the customer

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
