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 Management

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

    I worked at Starbucks full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, decent pay, fun people to work with, you know what to expect day to day, free coffee, easy to relocate.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be really hard to get the amount of hours you need. Sometimes the process to move up within the company can be very bureaucratic.

    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.
