Current Employee - Store Manager in Los Angeles, CA

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

Pros

When i first started I had no intention of making a career out of Starbucks. Now, I have no intention of having a career without Starbucks. For a large corporation, this company feels very small. Every decision made in store affects that store, partners, and customers. Along with the great benefits and the opportunity for growth, this company has it all. Along with the culture that promotes inclusivity and leading through the lens of humanity this company cares about people!

Cons

I wish to work in other segments of the company, but to do so I would likely have to move to Seattle. That is the ONLY drawback for me, which is very personal and not reflective of the company.

    Current Employee - Barista Trainer

    I have been working at Starbucks part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    great training for barista positions, beans markout each week, free drinks on shift, 30% employee discount, benefits for 20+ hours a week and pretty decent tips (depending on location). also mostly everybody there is fun to hang out with on shift, which makes the days pass a lot faster.

    Cons

    "the customer is always right", difficulty getting shifts covered if you're sick, except for becoming a shift manager you are pretty much stuck at one position (and pay scale).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    have baristas review store managers to force them to keep it together.
