Great place to work if you are satisfied by staying at the store level
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – September 13, 2016
If you are fine with staying at the manager level and not advancing to District manager or higher...then Starbucks is a good place. Benefits are great, pay is below average. Upper management is clueless, which is because District Managers are almost all outside hires with no experience behind the bar. Also, it seems that unless you are female, it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to become a Store Manager. I really felt I had grounds to file a discrimination suit, but since I'm a white male, it would have been useless. Partners are great for Starbucks, but when you get to the District Managers, it is just a joke.
full benefits at 20 hours/week. paid education
