Former Employee - Shift Supervisor in Sacramento, CA

I worked at Starbucks part-time (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.

    Early mornings and late nights. Worth it if you're young.

    Former Employee - Shift Supervisor in Denver, CO

    I worked at Starbucks full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They pay relatively well compared to many other companies hiring people with little experience. Since shifts are either in the morning or at night, it's great for kids in college. I spent several years working as a barista and shift supervisor at many different stores and appreciated it greatly. Almost everyone who works there is pretty cool.

    There are constantly opportunities for those willing to move up to ASM and SM positions.

    Cons

    Early mornings, suggestive selling, little flexibility in switching shifts last minute. It can be straining for those unwilling to adapt to customer service jobs...

    There really is a lot of pressure to stick with them, which means there might not be time to do valuable internships or gain other experience if you don't want to be a lifer.
