Pros: Free lunch, free beverages, partner discounts, and excellent benefits.
Cons: Short breaks, moody management, length of time with company before promotions.
I have applied every year since 2009 to work with Starbucks Coffee Company. Once I was offered a position as a Barista in 2014, I have been in love ever since! The managers are very flexible and understanding, although sometimes uptight, they are also very passionate and understanding. The benefits are great and they even offer a College Achievement Problem that helps their partners complete their college degrees and gives full tuition reimbursement. I have grown as a person in character, patience, and learned a great deal about customer service while working with Starbucks. I actually love my job!
