I have been working at Starbucks part-time (more than a year)

Pros

Starbucks offered me a quality training program, flexible scheduling, and competitive benefits for a mere 20 hours/week. My coworkers and managers were genuinely nice people. My store was located in a financial district, and it helped me network for a different job after I finished school. Even if I didn't immediately take a different position, I would feel comfortable at working for the company in a separate capacity after graduation.

Cons

Being a barista is a customer-facing job, and there can be a lot of obnoxious people. Sometimes I would be scheduled for hours in sporadic increments (35 hours one week, 10 the next). It took a while to feel comfortable making consistent beverages.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offer more resources to partners interested in joining "Corporate Starbucks."

    Pros

    Great company with GREAT Benefits. Incredible the way they take care of there help and people with Tuition reimbursement to the Cup fund. Amazes me that a company really cares about its help.

    Cons

    Shift Supervisors are in a sense like ASM and take on A LOT of responsibility and at times doesn't get compensated for it. With the new laws going into affect concerning the tips I believe Shift Supervisors need to be compensated more fairly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing but also know Shift Supervisors cannot live on 20k a year salaries :(
