I have been working at Starbucks full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

This is a company that really sits where it stands. Ethics, integrity, and respect are huge here. I love my job, but it is not for everyone.

Cons

Sometimes overwhelming. At times expectations can seem impossible to meet.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Build a shift team that can truly SUPPORT you. If you cant trust your shift supervisors to be good leaders when you are not in the store, you will end up overworking yourself and hating your job. Expect a LOT from your team. When you set the bar high, people tend to deliver.

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

    Pros

    A friendly place to work, for people who want to meet people and provide them with decent customer service. Good for training in food services. If you have initiative, you can move up somewhat rapidly, to shift supervisor, or assistant store manager.

    Cons

    Low starting pay. Fairly strenuous work, especially for people who might be out of shape

    I have been working at Starbucks part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There is some challenge to the job and a feeling of professionalism if your particular cafe is well managed. Pay raises are decent and promotions can be timely if you earn them. There is a strong team environment and often baristas form strong friendships that go outside of work. 401(k) matches up to 6% and stock options are available after the first year.

    Cons

    Shifts can be long and stressful physically and mentally. There is lots of standing and some cafes can be very high volume. There is no full-time status for baristas or shift supervisors, only for assistant managers and up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is good to promote the product within the Starbucks community, but things like "cupping", and coffee tastings, and other rituals to show love for coffee is a little overblown. Just let us taste the coffee.
