Great part time job on the side, but don't make this your main focus.

Pros

Time goes by quick, you will not waste 15 seconds standing around without doing something. Flexible hours.

Cons

Promoting to manager is next to impossible since most are hired from outside the company. Experience can vary greatly depending on manager and district manager. So many tasks to complete (with far too little time) and sales targets to hit and those are the main focuses, not customers. Almost impossible to get everything done and even then there's usually no recognition. Starbucks has turned into a typical corporate chain and lost touch of their roots of a customer focused happy environment.

Advice to Management

Get back to your roots of focusing just on the customer and for God's sake give us more hours of labor to complete what you ask of us!

    Advice to Store Managers: Take the time to get to know your staff and customers. Work an open, close, and mid shift every week. Rotate schedules so you gain a better understanding of your business. Train and positively encourage your team to develop and move forward.
