I worked at Starbucks full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Promoted 3 months in. Amazing atmosphere. Pay is above minimum wage, benefits earned after 90 days. Benefits given to partners working at least 20 hours per week. Promotion and raises are above average.

Cons

Some manager styles are hard to deal with because each manager is different and run the store differently.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Policies should be uniform for each store.

    I worked at Starbucks part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Close bonds with coworkers and manager
    Cozy atmosphere, was my 3rd place even as an employee
    Able to pick up shifts from other stores, flexible shifts which was great with school
    My store wasn't as rigid as other stores, probably because of it's location
    Free drinks and mark out each week
    Learned a lot about coffee
    Many of our regualr customers were great, good tippers as well
    Benefits for part time workers

    Cons

    Some customers were extremely innappropriate and rude, but there wasn't a lot that we felt we could do based on Starbucks policy that the customer is always right--sometimes they really aren't, and they take advantage
    Our store had a lot of unstable homeless folks coming in constantly, as well as drug activity in the area. We were also held up twice, and corporate didn't really show much concern besides having us close up an hour earlier at night. I believe this is what eventually led to the store being closed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a lot of talented people at the bottom--people who are being educated with bachelors and masters while working at your stores. You should better utlize your human capitol there, hire from within to corporate, since we already understand the culture and inner workings of the store.
