    I worked at Starbucks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits were great for the sort of job, got to work and interact with a lot of interesting people, shifts could be very fun depending on your coworkers

    Cons

    Depending on your manager, scheduling can be frustrating. Because of their promotions, having any time off around the holidays can be tough.

    Advice to Management

    Always have clear communication with the shift supervisors and baristas, build real connections with your partners, and try to coach in individualized ways

    Pros

    Working with Starbucks, I have learned to multi task, work fast and efficiently. There is a lot of team work.

    Cons

    With every job there's always a con, unsteady work hours and work schedule .. depending on your availability of course, but for someone who has an open availability, I never know if I'll have the same days off every week, it's always different.

    I have been working at Starbucks full-time

    Pros

    The job is really easy once you get all the drinks down and understand how everything runs. If you need a flexible schedule then this is the job to look at.

    Cons

    Can be very stressful at times. Depending what state you're in pay can be low. Vacation hours don't start till after a year.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to care more about the baristas and engage with them on how to make the store better. Working at Starbucks can be very stressful so talking with everyone and making sure they're okay is very positive.
