I have been working at Starbucks full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

This is a company that really sits where it stands. Ethics, integrity, and respect are huge here. I love my job, but it is not for everyone.

Cons

Sometimes overwhelming. At times expectations can seem impossible to meet.

Advice to Management

Build a shift team that can truly SUPPORT you. If you cant trust your shift supervisors to be good leaders when you are not in the store, you will end up overworking yourself and hating your job. Expect a LOT from your team. When you set the bar high, people tend to deliver.

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

    Pros

    You get benefits even at part time after 3 months, discount on products, stocks in the company, considered for raises every 6 months.

    Cons

    The cons more have to do with each individual store and how the employees work together and if the store manager is competent or not.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the baristas and shift managers more. Make sure store managers are being trained well. Give baristas and shifts a safe space to talk about what is going on in the store.


  2. "RD-Above> you cannot coach store managers to do what you cannot correctly perform the task or process yourself."
