Pros

Some of the best things about working for Starbucks, is the clear structure to how to be a productive employee. If you're looking to promote and are willing to put in effort, most managers are willing and are trained in developing the partners.

Cons

One downside to working for Starbucks in the field is the hours, if the store you work at has wide open hours, then so do you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look for avenues for which the field partners could be compensated in a greater take home pay.

    Pros

    You meet some of the best people, and if you're a people person, this is the job for you. Benefits are awesome! You get a raise every 6 months, depending on your performance; You get stock as soon as you start, which you can activate at any time, and cash out 2 years after your employment date. They also cater to the needs of their partners. If there's anything you need help with, they always have a number to call.

    Cons

    You start out with a bit above minimum wage, so it gets difficult at times.

    A company with a great moral culture, but limited advancement opportunity beyond the store level and subpar pay.

    Current Employee - Store Manager

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

    Pros

    culture, great relationships developed with partners and customers, great benefits, free coffee, great training

    Cons

    low pay, subpar computer systems, horrible labor and scheduling systems, District Manager level positions continually are filled with external hires, rather than developing and promoting store managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on developing Store Managers for promotion rather than hiring upper level management externally, make the pay match the expectations for all store-level positions
