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

    Pros

    Starbucks does have a great culture, some of the customers are great and can make your day. Great benefits for the restaurant industry.

    Cons

    Stressful work environment, management breathing down your neck at all times, extreme labor cuts in recent weeks while expectations continue to rise. Customers are often disrespectful.

    Advice to Management

    Don't play favorites, don't do extreme labor cuts and continue to raise your expectations. And expect the "starbucks experience" to remain with huge labor cuts.

    I worked at Starbucks (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The hours are pretty flexible. Tips. As much free coffe as you can drink during your shift.

    Cons

    Hours are flexible, but it's often difficult to enough hours. We were often understaffed due to never getting allowed enough labor to properly staff. Customers are often spoiled rude people. You are basically a milk pouring slave.

    Advice to Management

    Staff properly.

    Flexible hours. Free drinks during shift. Tips. Benefits are alright, stock is given after you have been there a year.

    I have been working at Starbucks part-time

    Pros

    Free coffee on the job, stocks and health care after 1 year, free pound of coffee each week, tips each week

    Cons

    Management can be bad, stressful job, DM in Albuquerque (downtown) sucks, would recommend to a friend (not in ABQ)

    Advice to Management

    Find it hard to be heard, after transferring, my pay was messed up and was told it can't be fixed by management and contact services.

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, free coffee and free drinks, opportunity to move up in company is available for those who wish to do so.
