    Pros

    Growth opportunities. Flexible schedule for everyone but the management. Multiple discounts, health benefit plan even for part-timers.

    Cons

    Sales driven environment. Students are account for a big part of (irresponsible) employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train the managers to maintain the sales without putting a pure pressure on baristas.

    I worked at Starbucks full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Consistent regular customers, absolutely amazing health benefits, steady hours, and predictable work experience. It's a great way to gain barista experience and they really make you *know* the coffee that you're selling. Easy to move up if you show that you want to stay within the company and Bean Stock for long-term employees can actually prove to be exceptionally valuable.

    Cons

    Minimum wage to start makes it hard to work here if you're not in high school or have a second job. Sometimes it can feel a bit 'cult-like' with their policies and internal company culture, but the 'Just Say Yes' skills learned make previous Starbucks employees sought after for other jobs outside of the coffee industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give raises that actually make an impact to exceptional employees and you'll have far less turnover.
