    Pros

    Good people, my district is full of hardworking people who care about each other.

    Cons

    Make minimum wage, and the way they set up the pay raises, I will always make minumum wage. They give you a raise right before the minimum wage rises.

    Pros

    You create amazing relationships between your coworkers and regular customers, it's amazing how much you will learn about their lives as long as you open yourself to it.

    Cons

    It's A LOT of work. It seems like a really easy job as a customer on the other side of the counter, but Starbucks baristas do tons of work customers don't see. Their ability to multitask is amazing.

    Pros

    I've been with Starbucks for over 10 years. They are always looking for ways to make partners lives better.

    Cons

    They could pay hourly partners more.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to be faster and have less turnover then allow us to actually staff the store.

    I have been working at Starbucks part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Boredom and repetition have always been the two leading factors to why I couldn't hold a job for more than a year. Don't get me wrong, you do repetitive tasks at Starbucks but it's not the kind of repetition I'm accustomed to. I work night shifts and enjoy the amount of problem solving. I'm still doing all the same tasks at every shift but it's the fact that I have the freedom of doing it my own order. What's also flexible about Starbucks is that I can move to any store I want. I've worked at the same location for 2 years and was able to transfer in less than a week when I moved to a different city.

    Cons

    Low pay, low hours, short staff

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your baristas and things will fall into place.
