    I have been working at Starbucks part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, people interaction, tips on top of hourly pay, can transfer to multiple locations in the event that you move.

    Cons

    High turn-over, fast-pace can be overwhelming at times (my store does 600-700 transactions per day), managers will possibly change your hours the week of with one or two days notice and you'll have to drop your plans to compensate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be upfront and manage your employees. Praise them when they do the right things and reprimand them when they do the wrong things. Multiple times I have been shorted tips ($20+ and we usually only make about $50 in tips) with upper management claiming that they can not do anything about it. Except as a manager it's their responsibility to have a conversation with the person distributing the tip money and resolve the issue. I would have left long ago if this job weren't in walking distance of my house.
