    Pros

    Great Training Environment, ability to move up, colleagues and management pro company, positive work environment, lots of learning opportunities, good travel arrangements, good benefits

    Cons

    Travel time a little tight, would consider discussing ability to expand internationally if that is your interest and clarify steps to do so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None - Management played roles very well - good appraisals and development plans, open door policies, created comfortable environment and good communication to direct reports

    I worked at Starbucks part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It is a fun atmosphere depending on coworkers and managers. You get free coffee while you work. Flexible hours for Baristas only.

    Cons

    It is a physically demanding job. Several coworkers got carpal and cubital tunnel. They will work you more than eight hours a day and not pay you overtime. They will schedule you to close and open with less than five hours between a shift and not give you overtime. They are always understaffed. There is not any room for promotions. Health insurance isn't that great. For the Las Vegas market employees are undercompensated considering you can get a job at a casino Starbucks, do 1/4 of the work and get paid more than twice as much with better benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    District Managers need to get their act together.

    If you want to work harder than you've ever worked, with little compensation, Starbucks is the place for you.

    I have been working at Starbucks full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free coffee, SOME people are great, provides a fantastic learning experience for business management, provides a great work ethic.

    Cons

    I'm a store manager. I worked my way up through the company over the last 7 years. Starbucks simply has unrealistic and sometimes impossible expectations at all levels of employment. As a store manager I work about 50-60 hours a week in store with an additional 5 hours of administrative work at home. I have to send three reports a week and I am expected to work my all of my store's most profitable days. I also have to post a schedule on Tuesday. Therefore I can only take Thursday and Sunday off, if I strictly followed those rules, which doesn't lead to a healthy work life balance. The compensation is dismal. Starting at $42,000 with low opportunity for bonus in most stores. The hourly wage breaks down to less $15 an hour, which for upper management is pathetic. It's especially disheartening when you consider the fact the my store's annual profit is a cool million and growing. It's not bad when you get some really great people in roles below you, however you can't expect them to stay forever because as they get older and wiser they realize it's not fiscally sensible to stay with Starbucks long term. I used to love this company. I thought management would lend me the authority and the autonomy to run a great business. Instead I find myself being micromanaged and reprimanded for not achieving the impossible. The red tape through corporate when it comes to employee management leaves me with next to no authority in reality, while I have to struggle with maintaining the illusion that I could fire someone for simply not working hard or fast enough. I hate going to work everyday and I am consistently searching for employment elsewhere, which is so sad considering how well I know the business of Starbucks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'd like to see more labor given, more administrative time given to store managers, and higher wages across the board at the store level. Starbucks will continue to grow until hitting the glass ceiling with their unhappy employees. Look at the signs! 70% store manager turn over in one district in one year has GOT to get someone's attention. Please help us!

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

    Pros

    great pay, benefits available of just after 6 months also you only need to work 20 hours a week. Looking forward to going back to school and finish getting that bachelors degree well eligible partner(partners who are benefits eligible are eligible for this incentive) can receive full 100% tuition reimbursement. Coffee masters classes are available to further your knowledge about coffee.

    Cons

    Extremely Hard labor, if your not able to keep your composer in a fast paced environment where tons of things need to get done then this job might not be for you. Leadership expects a lot but your only so limited, as well as lack of being able to expand your career opportunities at different parts of the plant. So many people so little positions to be filled. Its not what you know and what your good at its who you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your Partners, because they are the ones who are taking care of you behind the scenes.

    Pros

    It's fun and the atmosphere is always alive with new people coming in and regular customers making your day. Tips are great and so are the benefits.

    Cons

    Biggest challenge is always making sure that everyone is acting as a team and that no one is feeling left out. This just requires open communication at all times.

    Pros

    great coworkers, great benefits, management actually lsitens

    Cons

    As a supervisor, I was guaranteed about 40 hours each week, but as a barista, my hours could be cut at anytime, which was frustrating sometimes. Also a lot to learn at first, but it gets easier.

    Pros

    This company offers room for growth, if you want it. The transition from barista to shift supervisor is a well-managed transition. They set up for success, not failure.

    Cons

    As with these types of jobs, the hours are early, your working very closely with people and you can have difference of opinions.

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement, 401k match, travel savings program (paying for a chunk of my honeymoon), CUP fund in case anything happens to you.

    Cons

    The customers can be absolutely terrible, and you have to stand there and keep apologizing and smiling. If you don't work under a good and competent manager it can be miserable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your admin work on time, don't roll your eyes at your employees, don't make empty promises, communicate with your staff often and honestly
