I worked at Starbucks full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Excellent benefits; Work 240 hours per quarter and you will have full benefits.
Excellent atmosphere and a great group of people.
Opportunities for quick advancement up to Store Manager level

Cons

Rewards the more bubbly outgoing personalities regardless of how hard the work or the lack of work they do.
If you are young, any shift is easy but as you get older, 40 hours a week wears on you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't just reward the people who can talk the talk and be blind to the lack of work and worth ethic

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

    Pros

    As a company, Starbucks treats it partners (employees) well. Paid vacation, retirement, 401K, stock options, full benefits (medical, dental, and vision), are all available to eligible partners regardless of position.
    The company is also focused on improving it's community and environmental impact through various programs and charities it implements and associates with.
    Starting pay as a barista is just above minimum wage, with reviews and potential raises every six months. As you promote up, this is compensated for, since lower positions have a higher turnover rate.

    Cons

    Too much disconnect from corporate can lead local leadership (store, district, and regional) to lose focus on company values, putting profits into a higher importance than how people (partners and customers) are treated.
    Also, no guaranteed hours for part-time partners (baristas and supervisors).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The partners who work in the stores have good ideas. Don't write them off just because you are in a higher position than them.
