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

Pros

Coworkers, free coffee, benefits package (401k, medical, vision, dental, stock options).

Cons

Upper management, limited opportunity for advancement.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote from within. There is nothing more infuriating than having an outside hire that cant effectively run a shift, remember drink recipes, or man the espresso bar during peak business hours. I know several quality employees who left due to empty promises of promotion, only to see externals brought in as management.

    I worked at Starbucks part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It pays a good starting wage and tips. The corporate culture is amazing. You get a lot of benefits (including free drinks). You get to connect with customers you see repeatedly. It never really feels like work because it's so fun.

    Cons

    You smell like coffee and spoiled milk when you finish your shift. Its very high pace and they expect a lot from you. The cleaning is very in-depth and everything must be spotless. The customers are rude often. You get very long lines when theres a rush. If you work in the morning good luck, it gets hectic

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The starting pay should be $10 instead of $9 because this jobs requires more than a lot of jobs that start at this pay. Tips shouldn't be divided by how many hours you work and should given to you if you earn it at your register.

    Pros

    Health Benefits, Flexible Hours, Good perks, great co workers

    Cons

    Poor upper management, strict dress code and standards (which isn't necessarily bad, just confining).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company will thrive if all management was derived from baristas/shifts vs. outside hires.
