Pros

The benefits are great and make it worth the crap you go through - to a point.

Cons

Management can make/break the store. Promotions are based on tenure and not skill when you get into the manager position and it shows.

Advice to Management

Take a good look at who and how your stores are managed. You have some great managers and some very very bad managers. This disparity is hurting the company from the inside and out.

    Pros

    very fast paced environment which made long day go by much faster and working as a team to accomplish a goal.

    The permanent smell of coffee, Starbucks is open late which means late night shifts and early morning shifts aren't nice

    Advice to Management

    focus of innovation, create new beverages that are going to blow our mind. Team building workshop can be a good idea

    Pros

    Good tips and it's nice having co workers with fun personalities, makes the work environment much easier to deal with.

    The manager is uninvolved and unorganized. Unreasonable hours and extremely hard to get a day off even if it is urgent.
