"Great place to learn communication skills for a young adult"

Former Employee - Barista in Sacramento, CA

I worked at Starbucks part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Making delicious beverages, interacting with great customers, and learning how to communicate effectively. Also for the most part, the job is very fun and goes by fast.

Cons

beverage repeatable routine took away the ability to make amazing quality drinks. Disliked the very corporate nature that took over in 2010-2011. Frappucino happy hour was one of the worst shifts to work. Not enough freedom and allowed creativity to engage customers and make them "enthusiastically satisfied"

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible scheduling available, great place to network with so many different kinds of customers, free drinks, fun fellow employees

    Cons

    Working with drinks can be messy, sour milk anyone? Stores can vary greatly depending on the manager, this can sometimes can mean scheduling issues. You sometimes work with immature, young kids.

    Advice to Management

    Work hard and be respectful to your employees.
