I have been working at Starbucks full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great atmosphere. Endless benefits ranging from cheap insurance to discounts with other companies. Upper management is big on coaching instead of treating you like you're disposable. They look at their employees as an investment.

Cons

A lot of contradicting expectations. There is always a strong pressure from every angle, and sometimes it gets very overwhelming.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work a few days in the baristas shoes and realize the pressures they are under.

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

    Pros

    Great co-workers
    Free pound of coffee or a box of tea every week
    30% employee discount
    Stock option reward every year

    Cons

    ALOT OF WORK!! you are responsible for EVERYTHING, from making drinks, being a cashier, being a coffee salesman, restocking inventory, washing dishes, and cleaning the bathrooms, and more depending on the store. And its a very fast-paced environment. If you cant handle multi-tasking, then youre gonna have a hard time at this job, but once you get used to it, you'll love working there.
