Nice Subculture, and Great Coffee
Barista (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – January 24, 2016
I only worked for Starbucks for a short time, however I feel that they were very organized, and steeped in the coffee, and gourmet foodie subculture. It made working their fun! A typical day at Starbucks was to come in, and prep the coffees to be served to the customers, and to make sure the work areas were cleaned, and prepped and fully stocked. Also to log in and start assisting customers right away, and to be pleasant and welcoming to all of the customers who came in.
I learned alot about team work, and the meaning of being a team player, and to be constantly aware of your work environment, and to not be willing to settle for anything less than the very best.
I liked my store manager, and I though she was very knowledgeable and willing to listen to any feedback, from customers, as well as Baristas.Also willing to help out whenever needed, and train whenever possible.
I had been going through some personal problems in my life, and I thought the managment and co-workers at Starbucks were very thoughtfull, and willing to train, and give their very best to the staff and customers alike.
The co-workers at Starbucks were just like the customers, coffee experts, and gourmet foodie types. They were very committed to their jobs, and to the culture, and to making it thrives, and grow. It was really a blast working with these open minded individuals, it gave me the true sense of what a fun and eventful workplace could be like.
Great coffee, and overall fun place to work
