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

Pros

Being a shift supervisor at Starbucks is a lot of fun. It is challenging, fast paced, exciting, and there is always a new problem to be solved. Starbucks does a wonderful job developing their staff and helping them succeed in their desired carreer paths. The customers and employees are fantastic! I can truly say that this was by far my favorite job.

Cons

As a shift supervisor it is mandatory that you work at least 32 hours a week. This is difficult to do if you are trying to go to college and are in your junior or senior year. Shift supervisors do not get paid enough for the things that they have to do. They are basically assistant store managers without the title.

Advice to Management

Starbucks should hire multiple shift supervisors that would want to only work 20 hours a week. This would also save them money when it comes to benefits because if shifts can work less than 20 hours, than Starbucks won't have to pay them benefits.
