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

Pros

Benefits for lowly baristas. Better work environment than any other job that involves food service. Higher pay than other food service. I recommend being a barista at Starbucks while a student, or in between better jobs.

Cons

Hard, thankless work. It's food service, and the cons are all the things that come along with that. And having an inconsistent schedule no more than 2 weeks in advance makes it hard to have a life.

Advice to Management

More consistent schedules for baristas.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, great people, free grande bev with each shift

    The cons all stem from anywhere food service related. Low hourly pay (but there are regular raises!)
