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

Pros

Working environment, diverse customer base, interesting coworkers

Cons

Low wages, Very few chances for upward mobility

Advice to Management

Starbucks is a great company with a great menu of products. My former store did a great job at educating its baristas and shift managers, but I see inconsistency throughout the country. For example, the Starbucks in the Flint and Lapeer region have some of the most misinformed baristas I have ever encountered.

    I have been working at Starbucks full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love the benefits, the customers, coffee and food! I have always said it's not work unless it's fun... I defiantly enjoy working with everyone at my store. There is a level of respect at the Starbucks that I haven't seen at a lot of other work places. My manager is Awesome! I have a 401k, stocks, and they have done tuition replenishment!

    Cons

    I have wanted to get into the corporate side of Starbucks because I just love the company so much. They don't really get back with you a all.
