Incredible company!

Barista (Current Employee)
Golden, CO

I have been working at Starbucks part-time for more than 10 years

ProsStarbucks is incredible at helping partners out with all of the benefits they provide. Stock, insurance, 401K, tuition reimbursement... all have helped me out immensely and is a big reason of why I have been with the company for so many years. Also, the flexibility in scheduling as well as the fact you can transfer to any store makes it easy to live life without the job being your whole life. Co-workers and bosses are usually SO amazing company wide! Fantastic people to work with.

ConsSome customers can be very rude and condescending, but that comes with many jobs. Working weekends sucks but at least every partner shares the burden.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great Experience

Barista (Former Employee)
Lakewood, CO

ConsNo one seemed to like the Regional manager. He was not very personable.

Advice to Senior ManagementCompensation for entry-level baristas could be higher.

Love the benefits; The environment it iffy.

Barista Trainer (Former Employee)
Aurora, CO

I worked at Starbucks part-time for less than a year

ProsBenefits People Perks Product Individuality.

ConsBeing scheduled outside your home store and not being notified.
Avoiding problematic partners despite the safety of others.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe partners should be more of a focus then just the customers. The customer is not always right. Partners should feel safe in the environment they work in. They should want to come to work and not feel like it's obligation to serve pretentious Jerks or dealing with Partner who are not right for the role of a Barista. Partners should not feel unappreciated and should not be talked to like children when they are working at full potential. When a Partner is interested in a promotion and working on the goal; They should not be overlooked and passed up for someone who is less qualified because of the manager playing favorites.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
