Barista at Starbucks, fun and hands on
Barista (Current Employee), Corvallis, ORApril 10, 2015
Pros: Free drinks, one free food item a day, free pound of coffee a week
Cons: 10 minute breaks, constantly standing job
Typical day at work would be to take customer orders, ring up orders on registers, make customer drink and food orders, clean dishes, counter tops and machines. Work closely with co-workers, very fun work environment. Always something to do, never standing around. Benefits are great and so is pay/ tips. Always looking for improvements and pay raises/ promotions.

Learn to work under time pressure
Barista (Current Employee), Glendale, CAApril 9, 2015
One of the hardest things I do is taking things from customers without losing composure and not taking them personal. I learned to follow directions and work in a fast paced environment.

Great Company, limited advancement
Barista (Current Employee), Tulalip, WAApril 9, 2015
Robert Wayne is great! I was a keyholder there for 1 out of my 2 years there but since it's still a small company that's as far as I was able to advance without moving to Bellingham to a store with slower traffic. Great management and coworkers though.

Fun job to build and maintain relationships
Store Manager (Current Employee), Highlands Ranch, COApril 8, 2015
As a store manager, it is my responsibility to create a fun learning environment by managing a staff of 25-30 to ensure the excellent customer service. It was also my responsibility to ensure the profitability of the store by using the P&L statement to check that total contribution, controllable contribution, and target sales are met.

Great high paced work environment
Shift Supervisor (Former Employee), Fresno, CAApril 8, 2015
Pros: Free coffee, excellent insurance and 401k
Cons: high management turnover, understaffing, high rate of outside hires in management
My four years at Starbucks were a great experience for me, I worked under several different managers and was able to develop my own experience by working at three different stores here in California. I learned from my mangers and was able to work with them to help develop fellow baristas. Sometimes the hardest part of the job was the obstacles, challenges really, when a machine would break down or someone would call out or maybe you ran out of something, but that was also one of the fun parts because the team works together to overcome a tough situation.

Barista (Current Employee), North Little Rock, ARApril 8, 2015
I learned how to communicate and handle customers that may have been upset or unsatisfied with their beverage. Our manager is very understanding, and friendly. She listens to your ideas in a sincere manner. She also works with your schedule, and gives you the hours that you need or prefer. My coworkers are very friendly, helpful, and a blast to work with. They are accepting of any race, gender, orientation, as well as new comers.

Shift Management (Current Employee), Roanoke, VAApril 8, 2015
Pros: Free Sandwich/pastry, and beverages all of your shift, greath health benefits
Cons: Not getting alot of sleep
We open at 5, so being a shift supervisor I open with another person. We prepare coffee, teas and espresso bars. I count money, do a quick inventory of milk, check fridge temperatures. About 6:30 we start to enter our peak, which is considered our busiest time. I manage all breaks and lunches while maintaing the stores cleanliness and the apprearance of baristas making sure they are following store procedures. Around 10a.m I usually try and do the deposit from the previous day depending on business. I come back down pull sandwiches, making sure daily tasks are getting complete, Daily tasks consist of a bunch of cleaning tasks. I continue with sandwiches and pastry inventory along with providing customer service. Around 1p.m I count the safe and turn things over with the next supervisor.

Shift Supervisor (Current Employee), West Chester, PAApril 8, 2015
Pros: free food
Cons: caffeine
It's a great workplace when you have the right people and labor hours to make smoothly run shift. Otherwise, you constantly need tons of O2 and caffeine to get you through. To conclude, mostly a typical day at work is under-staff.
