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

Pros

The environment is comfortable, the product enjoyable, the people who work next to you are wonderful. The weekly coffee payout is truly missed in my home as well as the employee discount. One of the better companies at communicating to operations staff company future and current trends.

Cons

Hours of work can be challenging given strict budgets on labor and food costs. The pay is low to moderate for managers, however, the bonuses helped considerably when meeting store goals. Mid level management has low turn over. Very challenging to move up in positions.

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

    Pros

    The flexibility was great. Benefits are available at 20 hours/wk. If you move, chances are you would be able to transfer to another store without any trouble.

    Cons

    As with any company, your immediate supervisors make a huge difference in whether or not the work place is enjoyable. Some baristas make more than the shift supervisors, dependent on length of service. The amount of responsibility for the low pay is disheartening.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage your DMs to hire from the inside when assistant and management positions are available.
