I have been working at Starbucks part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Customers, Friendly Co-Workers (for the most part)

Cons

Customers, Retail, Managment (at least my store)

Advice to Management

I'm sure corporate is fine, but they need to do better with store managers and District managers. Better communication would be a good step.

    Pros

    The company is great with adapting your schedule to fit school, a second job, or family responsibilities. Every six months you get a review and a raise. There are plenty of outside resources provided by Starbucks to help you succeed such as benefits for part time employees, counseling for any employee going through a rough time, cup fund dedicated to partners in need, and even tuition reimbursement for college students.

    Cons

    Starbucks is open very early and very late so be ready to work at 4am and as late as 1am. Starbucks is also open on holidays (Christmas is the only holiday that is optional to work). Weekends are also required of shift leads.

    Advice to Management

    Many times Starbucks hires new store managers with no prior Starbucks experience and it is hard for them to manage when they don't fully understand what is expected of the workers beneath them. In my experience the store managers that have worked their way up form baristas have the best management capabilities.
