    I have been working at Starbucks part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible hours, benefits, tips and good people.

    Cons

    Upward mobility is not as great as I would have imagined. My particular store had ineffective management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With all of the students that come through the lower ranks, you are missing a great opportunity to keep talent within the organization by not reaching out to them before they endeavor into other careers.

    I worked at Starbucks full-time for more than 3 years

    Working environment, diverse customer base, interesting coworkers

    Low wages, Very few chances for upward mobility

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Starbucks is a great company with a great menu of products. My former store did a great job at educating its baristas and shift managers, but I see inconsistency throughout the country. For example, the Starbucks in the Flint and Lapeer region have some of the most misinformed baristas I have ever encountered.
