Former Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Seattle, WA

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

Pros

Always enough work when you are hourly plus the ability to transfer to another store in another city made Starbucks the ideal company for me to work for while I was going to college. As a barista the job was a blast. I still have my Green Apron Book and all of my pins.

Cons

The higher you rise, to more pressure there is (the same as anywhere). You have to know the answers and there were times when it felt like there was not enough time to figure everything out. The store managers and district managers are so busy that it often feels there is not enough time for mentoring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A manager should be the best Barista on the team before they try to manage the others. It's extremely difficult to gain respect when someone can do a job better than you and they are of a lower status.
