Can't beat it for flexible hours and full benefits.

I worked at Starbucks

Pros

Starbucks gives full benefits for part-time work, which is awesome. You generally have some flexibility in your hours up until the schedule is set the week beforehand, making this a perfect job for students and artists who need health insurance but need to not be in the office 9-5 every day.

Cons

You end up working weird shifts -- sometimes until 1 am to close, sometimes arriving at 4:30 am to open. And someone has to work the holidays, so be prepared to negotiate with your co-workers for your favorites.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I know Starbucks is at the center of your life, but for most employees, it isn't. They can still take pride in their work, so don't be offended or disheartened when other things take priority.

    I have been working at Starbucks

    Pros

    Benefits are great but be prepared to sacrifice for it. If you have any problems with employees not showing up or running late, you are stuck. Starbucks will always come first. Family, friends, plans will always take second place.

    Cons

    Scheduling. Baristas, supervisors will get the hours they need/want and you have to fill in the blanks so that hours are not over/under.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more feedback as changes from corporate come through. There is always a ton of disconnect between store managers between districts.

    It was a transitional job that I got stuck in for the people.

    I have been working at Starbucks

    Pros

    I felt loved and needed and appreciated until i made a small mistake where my well intended actions left me wondering and doubting the corporations support of a long term, loyal and committed employee, An employee whom the day to day starbucks customers cared more about losing than the actual corporation.

    Cons

    constant change, criticism, rules, gross drinks, all for what.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    YOUR BARISTA'S MAKE YOUR COMPANY. TREAT THEM WELL AND EVERYTHING ELSE TAKES CARE OF ITSELF.
