Current Employee - Barista in Bellevue, WA

I have been working at Starbucks full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great medical and partner benefits
Pay increase (when meets expectations) every 6 months
Lots of room for growth
Great training
Wonderful discounts and perks while a part of the company
Management on the store-level is usually very willing to listen to the opinions of their employees

Cons

Cleaning/maintenance of store can be physically taxing
Fast-paced environment can be stressful at times
inconsistent schedule (retail)
Your responsibility to get your shift covered even if you are very sick the night before (not the first thing I'd want to do when I am in bed with a 102 fever)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to listen to the opinions of those working in the stores more who receive recommendations from customers. It may improve the overall business.

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

    Pros

    They have competitive pay and an atmosphere that is simply the best that I have ever experienced to work in within the scope of the food service industry.

    Cons

    The large size means that it is slow to move or change when problems arise for individual stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To listen to your base employee's they are the ones on the front lines. Even if you are receiving information from above you concerning productivity, the people who handle it every day are the ones that you should listen to.
