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

    Pros

    Lots of free coffee, health benefits, short term disability and much more at only 24 hrs a week (based on a rolling quarter), flexible hours, early shifts, picking up shifts at any location- even on vacation, really good music, starting salary higher than most, tips, mostly friendly people, nice store discount, really I loved everything about this job but needed a job after graduating college that was full time and paid a little more. I think the shift leaders and managers are a bit overworked for the pay so I would only recommend the Barista position....

    Cons

    dealing with people before they have had their morning coffee.

    Advice to Management

    none

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

    Pros

    - Fun employees that make working fun.
    - Good benefits, and tips can be useful.
    - Partner markouts and discounted drinks can really get you knowing the product.
    - Learning how to make great beverages never leaves you.

    Cons

    - Bad managers make work hell.
    - Over worked or under used but mostly over worked.
    - Lots of hours even when you ask for less.

    Advice to Management

    Always remember your employees, when I left the manager was lying about the schedule and making us work without breaks.

    The assistant manager made this place awesome and she did get promoted keep this up and you will do well.
