I have been working at Starbucks full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Benefits for part timers (minimum 20 hours/week)
Free coffee (1 lb to take home each week)
Flexible work schedule
Fun and interesting, fast-paced
Opportunities

Cons

Your team and management make or break your Starbucks experience. Mine was very good for the first several years.
You will probably make minimum wage starting out
You will have to get your hands dirty, cleaning and taking out trash
There is a lot of product knowledge to remember

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep close watch on your store managers, even the ones who seem to be doing really well. Listen to your "partners."
