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

Pros

Part time benefits, part time time off (after a year), excellent environment, free pound of coffee or tea or other retail items like kcups and via. Tuition reimbursement programs, CUP fund (an account you can chose to have a deduction to that goes solely to helping other partners in need), the list just goes on and on and on. Not even to mention unlimited free drinks on the day you work and crazy discounts on any other day!!! Plus your Starbucks discount is international!

Cons

I really don't have any cons about the company itself.. mainly because there's a blog that partners can directly submit ideas and concerns to the head decision makers, and from what I have been told, they actually listen. Weird.

Advice to Management

Right now, the only advice I could really think of is.. get rid of mighty mats and just make the barista floor directly out of a rubberized material.. They have some really nice restaurant nonslip floors out there. (: And they look very nice too! It would be an extra task that is pretty complicated removed from our lists!

    I have been working at Starbucks full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and also a very rewarding career to take part of. I would highly recommend this company to anyone who was interested

    Cons

    Repetitive motion can be easy to overlook on a shift. I suggest rotating positions throughout shifts. Otherwise I consider this one of my top companies to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Instill trust in your staff and have consistency in your role whatever it may be. Also remember to recognize positive efforts and work as a team

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

    Pros

    Always enough work when you are hourly plus the ability to transfer to another store in another city made Starbucks the ideal company for me to work for while I was going to college. As a barista the job was a blast. I still have my Green Apron Book and all of my pins.

    Cons

    The higher you rise, to more pressure there is (the same as anywhere). You have to know the answers and there were times when it felt like there was not enough time to figure everything out. The store managers and district managers are so busy that it often feels there is not enough time for mentoring.
