Great first time job but not very career friendly

Pros

Fast paced environment that is great for a coffee lover. Get to know all sorts of different coffee and pastry products and enjoy weekly coffee markouts as well as employee discount

Cons

Usually demands long hours and occasional understaffed. The usual stresses of working retail definitely apply here.

    Pros

    If your team is good, the job is quick paced, but fairly easy. Starbucks does provide a good compensation package considering that it is essentially an unskilled labor/customer service job for most of the partners. With an average or better manager, it can be a great flexible job while in school. While I was in college, I never worked when I didn't want to and always managed to get more hours when I had free time to pick up some more.

    Cons

    When the people you are working with don't care about doing their jobs properly it sucks. Unfortunately, Starbucks doesn't pay enough to retain the their top employees (at the store level, at least), so there's always some slackers kicking around. We're replaceable parts in the system. Even though the benefits are nice, it's definitely not a long-term job unless you get into management.
