I have been working at Starbucks part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great benefits for part time job

Cons

Hard to move up if you cannot give more than 25 hours a week to work.
Waking up as early as 3am to get to work is something you never adjust to.

    Pros

    You can get health insurance for part time, you are given stock, an employee discount, and other financial perks.

    Cons

    It is very hard work, and you often feel undervalued no matter how hard you try.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to notice the little extra things that employees do, or they will become jaded and stop caring.

    I worked at Starbucks full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Easy, great benefits even for part time, friendly coworkers, good customers.

    Cons

    Low pay, expected to be available at the last minute if someone calls in, corporate places completely unreasonable expectations for a minimum wage job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some time actually working in your stores before dictating how it should be run. Most of them have never worked behind the counter in their life, and it shows.
