    I have been working at Starbucks full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits including 401(k) even when you first start out, great if you're looking for a satisfying part- or full-time job and a fun workplace.

    Cons

    Can be stressful at times if you let the pressure get to you during high-demand peak hours, not necessarily a con though if you use the pressure as motivation

    Pros

    coworkers and management are awesome. everyone is there for you when you have a problem and everyone works as a team. fun times have been had working here. benefits for part time employees is awesome. raises on a regular bases which is actually really nice. also product knowledge you gain sticks with you even after years of not working for Starbucks.. also easy to pickup extra shifts.

    Cons

    pushy and demanding customers is to be expected.. very snobby at times. some can be very irritating with demands and lack of actual knowledge of the product. also 3 strikes rule for tardiness..

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work
