I have been working at Starbucks full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great benefits for both full time and part time employees, also if you need a part time job, its easy to work the early shift and be done by 10-11 am and have the whole rest of the day for other things!

Cons

Pay sucks. Horrible. And they do not train you well. They push sales on coffee beans, but most of your customers are coming to get coffee from you and not make their own - really annoying to push that on them.

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

    Pros

    Making the customers feel happy when they come in and order, especially when you can make their drinks faster than the time it takes to walk to the bar! A lot of different people to work with! Hours are cool especially if you're going to school! Oh not to mention the dfree drinks you get and mark out every week!

    Cons

    Sometimes you can be on the floor with one other person during a wave of people. Breaks are short, 10 minute break and 1/2 hour meal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to baristas more often and have managers actually on the floor trying to help out!

  2. Good place to gain experience while in school, but don't get too comfortable and get trapped.

    I have been working at Starbucks part-time

    Pros

    Benefits for part-timers, free drinks, easy to climb the ladder (to an extent)

    Cons

    Mind-numbing, demands you to be overly subservient to customers, frequently disorganized/chaotic management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the promotion process much more difficult. Too many incompetent and/or clueless baristas slip through the cracks to the upper ranks.
