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

Pros

Flexible hours, excellent benefits, free drinks 30 mins before work, while at work and 30 mins after work, free pound of coffee or tea per week and 30% off everything all the time.

Cons

Some managers could you some training, as some are hired off the street and aren't familiar with Starbucks mentality.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on the floor as a barista more often to get a picture of working in our shoes, double check the weekly schedule to make certain that baristas aren't closing at midnight and then opening the next morning at 4:30am.

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

    Pros

    -People are FUNKY! And so fun, at least at my location.
    -You're a part of something caring and great and people love it, I mean yeah I don't value the syrups and stuff, but I choose not to drink it.
    -benefits of course.
    -you can transfer ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, if they have a spot for you, I might transfer to France eventually!
    -super flexible scheduling!

    Cons

    -Once you move up, it's all about keeping yourself moving up, not a fan personally, but for some that's what they want.
    -The clientelle can get bitchy, but they just want they signature drink.
    -I wish the company would carry through utmost quality that they have with a lot of things with EVERY thing, but considering how big the company is...it's understandable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hmm, not much really, just keep improving product for the better of the client, organic, local, a bit of a day dream, but a possibility in the future.
