    I have been working at Starbucks full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are so many benefits for every employee, you just have to actually look for them or ask for help finding them.

    Cons

    Customers are not understanding and tend to know how to work the system to get free things and make your life difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more understanding with partners, not just customers.

    I have been working at Starbucks full-time

    Pros

    Vacation, benefits, discount and free lb of coffee weekly

    Cons

    If you don't brown nose you won't make it here. The company has lost its soul. Paid holidays are paid but we are expected to work. Partner resources doesn't want to help and if you report your boss you will get a huge target on your back. It's a good Ole boy small town company. Howard would be disappointed

    Advice to Management

    Act like you care about the workers. Quit saying "business needs" as an excuse to treat us like robots. Get rid of the supervisors who don't have people skills and quit worrying about yourself and looking good.

    I worked at Starbucks part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are benefits provided for a minimum wage job, pay is better than most other places and tops make it even higher, and it is a very tight-knit environment and close relationships with coworkers and customers

    Cons

    A bit hard to grasp when starting since the training guide isn't very structured or informative, plus you have a lot of rude customers throughout the day.

    Advice to Management

    Update your training guides, fix some of your policies, and find a way to make customer support a little less strenuous, especially with newer people.

    I worked at Starbucks part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and friendly working environments.
    It's easy to promote and the job hours are fairly flexible.
    The job is perfect for entry level workers.

    Cons

    You meet people at their grumpiest and least patient, customers haven't had their coffee yet and are usually in a hurry. You are also on your feet all day which can be tiring if you have back or knee problems.

    Advice to Management

    None really. The job was fun and helped me enter the workforce, not worth more than minimum wage. Maybe if you offer commission on higher priced products we would actually try to sell them, but employees generally don't.

    I have been working at Starbucks part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, stock, free spotify, coffee beans mark-outs, free coffee on shift, and 30% off of everything. There's also the ability to build relationships with customer base and is flexible when working two jobs or school. There's paid vacation after 6 months. Starbucks is a perfect job for a student or someone who is in need of benefits while working another job they have high expectations and that comes with a respectable company, working here opens doors to places of higher earnings just because of their name.

    Cons

    Challenges patience, stressful environment, stretched schedules and constant push on staff to sell product. The staff is expected to do more than labor will allow and setting standards seemingly impossible to reach with the amount staffed at one time. The customers are given a sense of entitlement because of the love your drink or let us know they will curse and scream like children at times if you forgot their drink wasn't supposed to have whipped cream. The management can be vicious about sick days and, from my own experience, has forced a staff member to stay her shift even though she was taking breaks to throw up in the bathroom, and had a temperature. This is in part because the loss of one staff member means the day will be derailed due to high customer volumes and poor scheduling. New staff are thrown to the wolves after only one week of poorly executed training plans.

    I worked at Starbucks part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I loved working for Starbucks, all of the partners (Starbuck's employees) that I worked with were very helpful and nice, and I had a great experience with all of the customers that came in too. The regulars were especially nice!

    Cons

    The only cons that I would have would be if you are not very fast paced then that would be a con for you.

    Pros

    Fun, fast-paced work place. Making drinks is super fun and just talking to customers is a great experience as well- except for the rude ones haha

    Cons

    Some of the customers before they get their coffee are incredibly rude and have crazy detailed orders. And I had bad luck and worked with terrible management.

    Advice to Management

    Be more organized and communicate better with your staff and always put the customer first as well as treat the staff better.
