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

Pros

Most managers are flexible to your schedule, tons of fun getting to know customers, co-workers are pretty awesome, one of a kind work place.

Cons

If you don't know how to handle long lines it can be stressful. Anything that can go wrong will, but that is life, Customers can be really grouchy with they think they are wronged.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Always keep workers up to date with the need to know.

    Pros

    Freedom of schedule (store managers)
    30% discount
    A sense of business ownership

    Values relationships and open communicaton
    Chain of command is important but they value teamwork above all

    Cons

    Unrealistic coffee bean goals
    Too much emphasize on relationship with coworkers at times rather than task
    Management spends 80% on the floor, little time (8 hours/week) for analyzing business.
    Systems outdated
    Too much gray area in regards to policies and procedures
    Just say yes to customers always policy can get really irritating

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improvement in inventory systems, clearer policies regarding time and attendance, tighten up dress code policy (polos do not really say gourmet coffee) better training plan for external managers
