I have been working at Starbucks full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great people, great environment overall a good company to work for. Good development of employees. Feedback given both informally and formally in the form of six month reviews. Gives you are chance to know what areas you are doing well in and which areas to improve.

Cons

Understaffed. Calling in sick is basically non existent when you are a barista and especially if you are a shift supervisor. Dealing with difficult customers is a given because you are controlling their caffeine intake for the morning but you can develop some lasting friendships and good connections with both co-workers and customers

    Pros

    Great company with GREAT Benefits. Incredible the way they take care of there help and people with Tuition reimbursement to the Cup fund. Amazes me that a company really cares about its help.

    Cons

    Shift Supervisors are in a sense like ASM and take on A LOT of responsibility and at times doesn't get compensated for it. With the new laws going into affect concerning the tips I believe Shift Supervisors need to be compensated more fairly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing but also know Shift Supervisors cannot live on 20k a year salaries :(
