    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.

    I worked at Starbucks full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun when well staffed, easy, mindless work, benefits to part time employees.

    Cons

    Tremendous disorganization, CEO makes $27.5 million a year, we get minimum wage and shorted on labor, managers still have to play barista while juggling store management duties, improperly equipped- Starbucks developed playbook, a system of routines to maximize work efficiency, but by also taking every ounce of fun and personalization out of it, and instead of utilizing technology to make things easier we get plastic cubes (literally).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being greedy, because it's so obvious i dont know how you could even try to cover it up.... Over three years with the company and you see how it exponentially transforms into a McDonald's (obsessed with transaction times versus customer satisfaction and drink quality.... Why? We were fast enough before and our customers liked us better.)
