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

Pros

Great medical and partner benefits
Pay increase (when meets expectations) every 6 months
Lots of room for growth
Great training
Wonderful discounts and perks while a part of the company
Management on the store-level is usually very willing to listen to the opinions of their employees

Cons

Cleaning/maintenance of store can be physically taxing
Fast-paced environment can be stressful at times
inconsistent schedule (retail)
Your responsibility to get your shift covered even if you are very sick the night before (not the first thing I'd want to do when I am in bed with a 102 fever)

Advice to Management

Try to listen to the opinions of those working in the stores more who receive recommendations from customers. It may improve the overall business.

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

    Pros

    Good company to work for. What stands out the most is the culture there - very supportive and positive, every one works with each other very well. There are benefit's with part-time employment.

    Cons

    Early, early shifts at 4 am! as well as some pretty late shifts till 9pm & later. Getting fast on the bar can take some time if you don't get adequate training/time on the bar. You can be overlooked in stores that are busier and have more experienced staff since they'll have the more experienced people cover the bar since it's busy...

    Advice to Management

    Not interested but available. they train and hire from within from what I've seen.
