I have been working at Starbucks full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Great discount (30% + free drinks up to 30 minutes before/after shifts), "Roast" stocks option, saving accounts, etc.

Cons

Managers and supervisors are very nearly clinically bipolar. When a rush begins, it's nearly guaranteed that one will very nearly break down and take it out on the baristas. Also, guests can be extremely rude, as expected of any workplace.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Choose management more wisely. There are multiple management-ready baristas at my location, yet those above them are not quite so proficient.

    Pros

    You will get insurance, get raises, 401k, get stock in the company every 3 months, and have a great experience.

    Cons

    There is quite a lot of recipes and standards and procedures and many other things that you will have to remember.

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

    Pros

    The company puts a genuine emphasis on developing their partners (employees). Real efforts are made to have a positive impact on the world.

    Cons

    Company is ever changing and reinventing itself. This can cause instability and reduces incentives to get things right for the future. Rather the incentive is to get things right for now since the future will be quite different.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set and share your vision for the next several years. Give the partners something they can they can sink their teeth into and help push forward.
