Free coffee (1 lb to take home each week)

Opportunities

ConsYour 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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
