Featured Review

Current Employee - Safeway - Starbucks Barista

I have been working at Safeway part-time for less than a year

Pros

The employees in the Starbucks kiosk and throughout the store are all wonderful to work with. Supportive, fast-paced environment to work in and a great opportunity to serve customers visiting from... all over the world!

Cons

Hard to find enough employees during the busy Summer months but Vannessa, the manager, is great about working with everyone's personal schedules.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work and don't trust applicants' resumes, actually check them out because too many people are not truthful about their experience.
