I worked at Starbucks part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Coworkers, free coffee, benefits package (401k, medical, vision, dental, stock options).

Cons

Upper management, limited opportunity for advancement.

Advice to Management

Promote from within. There is nothing more infuriating than having an outside hire that cant effectively run a shift, remember drink recipes, or man the espresso bar during peak business hours. I know several quality employees who left due to empty promises of promotion, only to see externals brought in as management.

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

    Pros

    I love the employee perks such as a free pound of coffee every week, free drinks while on shift, and the laid back atmosphere. Co-partners are mostly college students. Starbucks also has incredibly high standards for sanitation and cleanliness.

    Cons

    Pay starts out at minimum wage, you also don't get tips until you have worked two weeks.
