I worked at Starbucks part-time (more than an year)

Pros

The pay is higher because it is owned by the military, there are always interesting people from all over the world that you meet or work with, and there are usually new employees every year because most of the time the employees are military spouses and they PCS (relocate) after a few years.

Cons

Because of employees PCSing, you don't get to be friends with co-workers for too long, HR takes a while time to process paperwork most of the time, and because it is owned by the military some promotions are not available at the Starbucks on base and that usually upsets customers.

    I have been working at Starbucks part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Under the right leadership, tasks and duties are accomplished through proper training and your own dedication. Starbucks benefits are a plus. If you are a people person, then this is the position for you. If advancement is in your future and you have the skills to move up, you will gain support from management.

    Cons

    The pay and it's a lot of work. If you don't like to clean then this is not the job for you. Aside from the expected duties, cleaning is essential for this position. I don't mind it but many people aren't willing to work as hard as I due to the pay or natural laziness of such individual.
