I worked opening shifts and they were really nice when it was more early. Once it got to 9am-11am it got super busy. I liked taking orders and being at drive-thru window best. It sometimes got hectic at the warmer station. Drinks weren’t too hard to catch on to.

This job was fun at first but is stressful. Starbucks has been having staffing issues and you deal with a lot of and the pay is not worth it (less than $10/an hour)

Very long shifts with few benefits outside of the insurance related ones. Little pay raise and newer employees are treated better than older and more current ones.
