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

Pros

the benefits like health care, free coffee , tuition reimbursement, discounts

Cons

unfair termination of older workers . Not only was I terminated because of my age now I can't get my unemployment because of a catch 22 policy

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Older workers are dependable committed and loyal should not toss out like trash

    Shift Supervisor Interview

    I have been working at Starbucks

    Pros

    I am still new to the company and in the training phase, but the training is very thorough and the benefits each partner receives seems to be very good.

    Cons

    As I have talked to partners that have worked at this specific location, they said upward mobility within the company is near impossible. That the company does a lot of outside hiring for upper management positions. And if you were to be given the opportunity for advancement, be prepared for relocation or risk possible demotion. I'm not sure how true all of this is or if its just hearsay as I am only a week into the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice at this very early point in my tenure here at Starbucks would be to be realistic with future partners about upward mobility. As I have read through this site, I see a trend of outside hiring as opposed to hiring within the company. And if this is true, maybe shift the focus to current partner advancement, especially to the partners that are very committed and invested in the company. I'm just not sure I see the benefit of bringing in so many outside hires and have them go through the entire training process from bottom to top when you have people primed for advancement and know the Starbucks "way".
