    Pros

    Awesome people, great benefits, and fantastic career development opportunities.

    Cons

    It is a corporation, so promotion is a lot like a carrot on a stick. You will see new hires and external hires take the spot of your promotion and still hear about your development.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people what they are worth and develop a different pay structure for metropolitan markets. Stores cannot afford such high turnover simply because working at a gas station pays better,

    Pros

    Great Company! A fun team, the company truly cares about its employees.

    Cons

    Customers will suck every last bit of humanity and love you have for the world. You will become a bitter hateful person.

    Pros

    Good benefits, team environment, good culture.

    Cons

    Low pay compared to responsibilities, company puts excess stress on employees by refusing to provide labor hours due to poor economic forecasting.

    Advice to Management

    I've always had good experiences with Starbucks management. I would recommend that the company offer more meaningful incentives to lower level employees. Managers can receive valuable bonuses for meeting and exceeding their goals, however supervisors and barista's can only receive bonuses for training new employees, and winning the partner of the quarter award. These bonuses are less than 2% of a bonus that a store manager would get just for completing the same sales as the previous year. Starbucks economists have been hitting walls in recent years, really since the company initially caught fire from 2000-2010. Doing something about issues like this would not only show strong business ethics to the public, but would improve the company's efficiency. Both of these would drastically increase stock value.

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

    Pros

    My store Manager is amazing at making all partners feel special, competent, inclusive and confident. The training I received is amazing and everyone roots for you to succeed. The "tone" my manager sets is one, wherein, all of us enjoy working with one another and every time we are finished with our shift, she (and all the Shift Supervisors) thank us! I just love coming to the store as a partner and as a customer. I am proud to say I work at that location as it's run incredibly efficient and everyone is so nice!

    Cons

    I was burnt on my hand with coffee - twice in the same spot within the same hour! My body hasn't been the same since I started working at Starbucks; my fingers are completely arthritic; my back aches and my feet hurt to the point where I can barely feel them. Physically, it's the toughest job I've ever worked..

    Advice to Management

    Can't think of anything as they seem to genuinely care about all of their employees.

    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.
