    I worked at Starbucks part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The drinks are amazing. I didn't have to deal with crazy rude customers. It was always fast paced until 9pm. Co-workers were a blast. Managers were really attentive and friendly they only wanted you to be successful.

    Cons

    I didn't like the smell of coffee and espresso so it was hard to smell it all day everyday. My manager wouldn't change up my hours knowing that by the time I got home it was after midnight and I had school the next day.


  2. "Fun job, but not worth the hassle"

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

    Pros

    High-paced, energetic atmosphere. Morning rush will burn 1000 calories. Free drinks and customers are awesome. Good benefits and career opportunities. Good teammates and atmosphere for the most part. Starbucks, overall, is awesome.

    Cons

    Overlook in our area creates a near tyrannical situation. Since we are the only Starbucks in the whole UP, it's hard to get the DM's attention if something isn't right. Management is a little over-the-top with ex-military expectations and impossible to meet demands. Hardest part of job is always working with new hires and training people in because of the insane turn-over rate.

    Advice to Management

    When you have that high of a turn-over rate and that many investigations launched against one person, it might be worthwhile to look into it. Since we're the only store in a relatively large region, our sales are always going to be good, there is no where else to go! Take a break from pushing sales goals and take a look at why you've trained in 15 new hires in the last 6 months.
