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

    Pros

    You get to meet really awesome regular customers from all walks of life, work in a dynamic group setting and learn how to give great customer service. Also, the offer benefits to part time employees, employee discounts, free pound of coffee every week, free drinks during your shift, and tuition reimbursement. Easy to move up if you work hard.

    Cons

    Honestly, underpaid. Although they pay about 15 cents over minimum wage, you are paid standardized wages for customized service (Above and beyond). If only they paid like in n out! Grumpy customers and 4am shifts are also a downside. Customer needs come before employee needs.

    Advice to Management

    Be as employee focused as you are customer focused.

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

    Pros

    Great coworkers
    Possibility of benefits after six months, then when enrollment period comes around.
    Flexibility in days off

    Cons

    high stress level if you're in a high volume store
    many customers won't treat you like a human being
    irregular shifts from week to week
    if you can't afford a doctor's note or get someone to cover your shift, you have to work sick
    getting someone to cover your shift is really difficult

    Advice to Management

    Take some of the stress off your baristas. There's a high burn out rate for a reason. Allow for schedules the barista wants instead of different hours each week.

    Better pay to compensate for the amount of stress. Big investment can lead to even bigger rewards and more loyal employees.

    Focus on being a genuine company instead of taking up campaigns for money only. Better quality in products.
