    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Starbucks part-time

    Pros

    Good if you like procedure and control
    Fair with breaks
    Rigid Training
    Friendly and fairly fun place to work

    Cons

    Cleaning is a huge part of your daily tasks- if you are on a pm shift this will involve cleaning every item of equipment
    Upselling premium coffee beans

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more of an incentive to upsell beans- e.g bonuses


  2. "Good job while studying."

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

    Pros

    Respect for partners, very good benefits, flexibility with shifts and stores. Other partners all super friendly, shifts are always great fun.

    Cons

    It's physically hard work. Lifting milk, moving stock, being on your feet all day is exhausting. Customer Service is mentally draining.
    This goes for many barista roles, and isn't really starbucks specific.
    Wage is low for amount of work we do.
    Difficult to progress due to high number of employees
