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

Pros

Health insurance, tuition reimbursement, flexible hours and schedules, ability to move up in company, good values.

Cons

Cheap salary, the downsides of working with food + beverage, pros and cons greatly depend on management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If Starbucks wants to treat their partners as how Howard himself has said they should be treated, management (including store, district, and regional managers) should also have this value and belief in mindset. Starbucks' vision can be easily skewed when it certain managers have completely dismembered the Starbucks mission within the community. Care about your partners, and they will care about the company.

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

    Pros

    The community was great, and I loved my customers. The scheduling was also worked really well with my school schedule. Most days, I was excited to go to work, because it was fun.

    Cons

    The balance of power wasn't great. There were days when I didn't feel like I had an advocate in management. It's also like any other customer service job - you're going to have days where the customers suck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that the store managers need more support from district managers.

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

    Pros

    flexible hours
    great people to work with
    a lot of opportunity

    Cons

    Difficult to stay motivated, customer service can be taxing on one's emotions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate should look for more potential from their retail stores when hiring for their corporate offices, it makes more sense to look for people who already know the culture.
