Great company to work for part time.
Pros: Full benefits for part time employees, employee discounts, personable management, team oriented work culture
Cons: Hard to get many hours, low pay.
I worked for Starbucks for a couple of months while living in California. It's a good job, friendly people, and it teaches important building blocks of information to working as a team. I say that Starbucks is a great beginner job, and don't have many complaints. My only issue is the pay. It is impossible to receive full time hours from this position (Barista) without being in management, and only pays minimum wage according to the state the store is located in. On the other hand, they give out full medical benefits, which is exceedingly rare for a part time job.
