    Cons

    I wish they gave more hours.

    Advice to Management

    Please give more hours

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

    Pros

    I enjoyed free coffee and food, i met awsome people. They thought me a lot about customer service, and being more outgoing.

    Cons

    Way to busy and never enough coverage, my partners worked so hard for their little pay. I would recomend not working their 2 years+.

    Advice to Management

    Coverage is necessary for good times, and customer service.

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

    Pros

    hard working co-workers, a decently fast paced work environment, a free drink for every shift, usually well structured and close knit management to barista relationship.

    Cons

    the customers can be very self entitled, impatient, and clueless to anything that has or will ever happen in the universe.

    Advice to Management

    focus more on the baristas' concerns and have more training time for employees, there is a lot of information to take in for such little time.

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

    Pros

    They're an ethical company and a great brand that is consistently innovative. Discounts on stock, 5% employer match for retirement contributions, food and drink mark-outs, and free Spotify are nice perks

    Cons

    Scheduled hours are often inconsistent, making it hard to budget precisely. New products will be launched without much discussion from management.

    Advice to Management

    Continue opening in new markets

    Pros

    Great environment to work in along with great partners. Starbucks tends to hire really enthusiastic and social people so I felt very welcomed when i started. The benefits definitely make up for the minimum wage.

    Cons

    It's ALOT of work for just minimum wage. If you want a job that keeps you busy, then this is the job for you. But the benefits + minimum wage make this part time job worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep what doing what you guys do!

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

    Pros

    It's a very easy job when you have a great team on your side. They train you how to make the drinks and how to make the moment right. You also get a free lb of coffee a week and you get to make drinks at work for no charge. Some regulars can be very nice to you and they have a partner website and hotline for when you feel like something is going wrong at work.

    Cons

    Lately, Starbucks asks for a lot without providing much help. They don't schedule e enough people and it's hard when you work in a mall on the weekend. People don't tip well either, but it depends on the region. Obviously, it's fast-food (technically) so people will take advantage of you and destroy your spirit.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your partners


  10. "It has its ups and downs, mainly because we are located far away from other Starbucks stores and are unable to get help."

    Pros

    The flexibility of the hours, and the willingness for people to learn new things. The company offers a lot for their employees.

    Cons

    We aren't able to receive help and are severely understaffed and are unable to accomplish any training for new hires.

    Advice to Management

    Stop having us do certain tasks every single day before a specific time because we are unable to accomplish it without it being more simple.
