General Manager (Current Employee) – Laredo, TX – August 20, 2019
Starbucks has an awesome culture and values and it provides partners with some great benefits. The only thing I don't like is that the company does not allow managers to adjust schedules even if we posted 3 weeks ahead of time. Any partner can call sick to take care of his pet or a family member and the manager will have to cover if nobody is available to cover the shift. Managers are not even allowed to ask for doctor note. How do I know if people just want to take the day off and me covering for them. No OT for managers.
Barista/Cashier (Former Employee) – East Northport, NY – August 20, 2019
I loved being a barista and making a great cup of coffee for the customer. The whole mantra of star bucks is to connect with the customers. I really did make connections with customers but the super high speed pace just took away from the connecting with people. Too bad because I really enjoyed making all the different types of coffee.

You won't regret the experience. Every day is interesting and it's so fun to see cusomters faces light up when they see their drink. Go in ready to work hard and have fun and you'll never have a bad day!
BARISTA (Former Employee) – Exton, PA – August 20, 2019
I worked here for five years, and it was a great first job for me to learn the basics in an environment where you didn't constantly feel pressured not to fail. The worst thing you could do was spill coffee at the barista level, so it was a good place to learn urgency, time management, and people skills.

The only way you will get noticed is if your friends with everyone at your store if not you will get lies told about you and when you walk in the whole store looks at you like u are a bad person and u do one thing wrong and they will turn on you in a heartbeat and then pretend to be your friend

The best thing about this place was the flexibility in shifts and were able to adjust to school schedules. They paid higher than the medium wage by a dollar, and raised in pay per year. At least that was what I was told. Overall it may take time to move up, but not as much in other jobs.
majority of benifits are only for full time workers
Barista (Former Employee) – Green Bay, WI – August 20, 2019
I thoroughly enjoyed working at Starbucks, making the drinks, taking the orders and connecting with the customers makes it worth your while. It's a very easy going job, relaxed, you just have to pay attention to what you're doing and keep good communications with your coworkers.
I have worked for the company for 3 years and they don’t give good raises at all. I’m literally making about the same as I was when I started. Not worth being yelled at, condescended, and used. I work two peoples jobs for a very low wage. Yes, the benefits are nice. No, it isn’t worth it to me anymore honestly.
Barista (Current Employee) – Saint Cloud, FL – August 20, 2019
It's not the best place to work, but definitely not the worst. IT all depends on the store your'e at and the group of people you have with you. It can be high stress during the rushes, nut that can make it a lot of fun because your'e busy and the time flies by.

The Starbucks Warehouse Is A Great Environment to Be In Filled With Great People All Around, Including: Coworkers, Supervisors, Trainers, Management, And Even The Big Wigs. The Smiles You See Throughout The Shift Will Get You Through The Shift🤝
Cashier / Barista (Former Employee) – Irvine, CA – August 20, 2019
Starbucks as a FoH employee is a fast paced environment perfect for people as a first job or if they enjoy that kind of environment. They are accommodating to your school schedule and understanding about your life outside of work.
Barista (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – August 20, 2019
The benefits are outstanding. I recieved my bachelors degree for free with them and started a 401k working part time and had stocks (about 600 dollars) each year to cash out. And they paid for my maternity leave. Buuuut, the work is stressful everyday. It will challenge you everyday. And the pay is WAY too low. The management will always work with you for your schedule or any issues your having. But, the staff is usually very young and thus immature and can be plain mean for lack of a better word. It's a physically demanding job, my body hurt after every shift. So, like everything else in life it has its pros and cons.
