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

Pros

Great atmosphere. Endless benefits ranging from cheap insurance to discounts with other companies. Upper management is big on coaching instead of treating you like you're disposable. They look at their employees as an investment.

Cons

A lot of contradicting expectations. There is always a strong pressure from every angle, and sometimes it gets very overwhelming.

Advice to Management

Work a few days in the baristas shoes and realize the pressures they are under.

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

    Pros

    Flexibility, health, vision, dental, tips.

    Cons

    Open shift hurts after a few months, hurts even more after a few years.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to recognize and compensate those who have to work split shifts, early opens, and 'acting' roles when managers are unavailable.


  2. "positive and growing"
