    Pros

    You NEVER get bored. Meet very interesting customers that you can learn a lot from. Great benefits. Opportunity for advancement. Diversity between employees (it's not all the same age range). Free drinks obviously:) Everything's very routine oriented so there's never anything unexpected. You never stop learning.

    Cons

    Unstable hours, change every week. The people you work with can either make it really fun or really stressful. Pretty big tax deductions.

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

    Pros

    Excellent training programs for people considering going into management.
    For a fairly entry level job employees who wanted to work towards leadership roles had the opportunity to manage special tasks if they so chose.
    They had a competitive total pay package and full benefits for park time workers.

    Cons

    It seemed as though management was constantly turning over. Having a never ending stream of new store managers and district managers made it difficult for the employees to know how to meet expectations.
    If you're considering starting with the company with the intention of moving up, its best to gain the skills elsewhere and join the company at a higher level. They do not promote from the retail side to corporate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This was a great college job. I enjoyed my time there, learned some great skills and may have stayed with the company if I felt that there were more opportunities growth.
