I worked at Starbucks full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great people make the job a lot of fun. Compensation is great if you take advantage of SIP other stock options, 401K benefits and everything else. Starbucks does a great job of reinvesting into the partners. Company was not going in the right direction but when Howard took the reigns again it took a turn for the best and seems to be continuing in that direction.

Cons

A lot is asked of those who run stores especially supervisors usually with time restraints. Additionally it is difficult to make a living off of the pay. Difficult for a career choice.

    I have been working at Starbucks part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, great training, it's a wonderful work environment as long as you aren't swamped with customers. Good stock options, and if you're willing to stick with it, there's a lot of room to grow and get better pay rates as an assistant store manager.

    Cons

    Depending on the store, it can be very busy, the amount of stress and fatigue that goes on is incredible, and there's a constant push to do better, to sell more, and raise customer voice (a random survey that's taken by select customers).
