Pros

Works with schedule for school, good benefits for part-time work, fun place to work if you get the right store.

Cons

More difficult than other jobs to work the ladder unless you are a diversity candidate. Upper management can seem disconnected from barista's and shift supervisors, leaving a sense of superiority that is sometimes unwelcoming and uncomfortable. The pay is never great, not one person do I know who is a barista or shift supervisor was able to support themselves alone.

    Pros

    Ability to cover shifts at other stores
    Flexible schedule
    Decent pay
    Product discount perks

    Cons

    Customer service standards from corporate continually dropped over the years
    Stressful management
    Staying with the company became unattractive as all management positions were unhappy with their jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the emphasis on the "just say yes policy"
    Better perks for shift leads and store management positions (an extra $1/an hour is hardly incentive to take on the responsibility of a shift lead)
    New products are more of a distraction from the quality of Starbucks, as a customer prior to my employment they irritated me, and as a former employee they continue to bother me. I loved Starbucks for its atmosphere and coffee, additions on top of that cause a loss of focus for employees and customers.


  2. A good place to work as a college student

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging
