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

Pros

It's great to work for a progressive company that is involved in improving the communities throughout its supply chain.

Cons

Teams are continuously understaffed. Workload continues to rise, while team sizes remain static. Salary and compensation are at the low end of the industry. Very limited company holidays, and minimal vacation.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Staffing and training need to be higher priorities. IT Professionals expect better healthcare and vacation packages.

    Pros

    Ok job but salary is horrible for the work you do.

    Cons

    salary, physical activity, the pace, not much advancement, training is hard in busy locations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think you need to pay your employees better. As with other employers, no one can make a living off this.

    Pros

    Benefits for part-time partners (insurance, stock gifts/options, 401(k) option) and the people make the experience worth it.

    Cons

    After working at three different store, I know leadership is not Sbux strong suit. And it will always be a service job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you try just a little bit, it can keep your store from going into chaos. Poor leadership leads to stores losing focus of the company: customers love for coffee.
