Current Employee - Store Manager in San Jose, CA

I have been working at Starbucks full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Happy work environment
Great company insurance and total benefits package
Extremely flexible schedule

Cons

Corporate losing touch with needs of store managers and staff
Alignment of retail product in grocery and other outlets harming sales in stand-alone stores with no change to store targets, which greatly affects ability to earn quarterly bonus.
Coupons in grocery even worse
Getting up at 4am to come to work!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You can only do more with less for so long, then you start doing less with less. 5h/week to be a store manager and the other 35h being an overpaid barista is not an effective way to train and motivate staff to excellence.

    Pros

    flexible hours, good training, great benefits and awesome co-workers!

    pay isn't the greatest, sometimes you are working more then what you signed up to do and labor can be pretty intensive at times.
