Blood, Sweat, and Laughing Tears

Barista (Current Employee)
Lone Tree, CO (US)

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

ProsGreat 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.

ConsUnderstaffed. 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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Starbucks has treated me well, despite management changes

Barista (Current Employee)
Irvine, CA (US)

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


Pros: Starbucks offered me a quality training program, flexible scheduling, and competitive benefits for a mere 20 hours/week. My coworkers and managers were genuinely nice people.… Cons: Being a barista is a customer-facing job, and there can be a lot of obnoxious people. Sometimes I would be scheduled… Advice to Senior Management: Offer more resources to partners interested in joining "Corporate Starbucks." Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
