    I worked at Starbucks part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Starbucks was very fast-paced, lots of great interaction with people. Depending on manager can be flexible with schedule. I met a lot of friends (employees and customers) at this job due to the sheer amount of people that come through.

    Cons

    Mobility limited. I tried for years to get a position in a non-retail setting and despite my good-standing and references was unable to find something. My friends who were store managers all wanted to be district managers but usually DMs were hired from outside. The stress level above barista goes up exponentially and is not worth the pay increase.

    Advice to Management

    Care for employees well-being and customers will have a better experience and spend more. Cutting staffing, introducing infinite amount of products fragments the experience and is stressful for everyone at the store level. DMs should be required to work a barista shift in each store in their district at least once a month.

    Pros

    Good benefits package, depending on where you work there is a good team environment, free coffee, one free food item per day

    Low pay, things get crazy around the holidays, sometimes there is not enough hours to go around, the culture has devolved from very personalized and friendly to "here's your coffee, have a good day!"

    Enable baristas time to connect with customers by providing extra staffing when appropriate
