Pros

You get to connect with customers on a daily basis, and depending on your area and the type of people you get it can be a lot of fun.

Cons

Little pay, little say within the company, no bonuses to speak of.

Advice to Management

More incentives to upsell for all partners. Currently if we help our store do very well financially, the only person who gets a bonus is the manager.

    Pros

    Partners at most stores are usually really easy going as well lots of the regular customers are actually really interesting.

    Cons

    Insanely repetitive with the job pretty much involving making drinks and then following a cleaning list the rest of the time. Also lots of stuck up business people.

  2. It was a fun break from my boring desk job

    Pros

    Starbucks is great because it's a social atmosphere where you're encouraged to connect with your colleagues and customers. Getting to know the regulars was a fun part of the job. It's also a team based environment and my managers never made me feel beneath them.

    Cons

    My experience was mostly positive. I suppose it could be a little hard to increase your compensation without a big jump in status.
