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

    Pros

    Working for fast growing company with so much to offer as far as benefits. I have never had vision and dental all in one package as well as a nice stock option plan. When you work holidays they really make up for the time you put in.

    Cons

    The early hours get to you and you have to make that adjustment to your lifestyle.Also if you get short staffed the company really looks down on OT pay.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change a thing. Everyone is great and works very hard.
