    Starbucks is an amazing job...if you don't have to pay your own rent.

    I have been working at Starbucks part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The insurance is amazing, probably the best out there, my deductible is $400! After a certain period of time, you start to accrue paid vacation hours. You get free drinks while you're at work, and when you're not at work, you get 30% off...you get the same 30% off all merchandise in the store. You're able to pick up shifts at other stores if you need extra hours and vice versa, you can get others to cover your shifts if need be. You get weekly mark outs, which allows you to get a pound of coffee OR any tea product, including the tins of tea bags, boxes of chai and any VIA pack. Starbucks also provides a 401K plan, stock options, the cup fund and more. Their benefits are truly unbeatable.

    Cons

    Most Starbucks open extremely early, which is a con for me. Another con is making close to minimum wage. So, although the benefits are great, they don't pay you enough to live on.

    Advice to Management

    The only downside is the hourly pay rate, PLEASE pay these people more!! Almost everyone I've worked with at Starbucks LOVES their job, including me, so we definitely deserve to be paid enough to live on our own!!

    I worked at Starbucks full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people, benefits, fun job, great coffee and food items.

    Cons

    I was let go when I was an assistant manager back in 2009. I was all set to have my own store and then the company laid off people.

    Advice to Management

    It's ok to possibly rehire individuals who where let go back in 2009 if they still have the desire and passion to work for the company.
