SHIFT SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – September 25, 2017
A typical day at Starbucks is running around refilling and stocking the front case. Cleaning the cafe and helping customers. It was a job with lots of cleaning and customer service. They were also big on educating employees about coffee and tea so we could be a resource to the customer.

Fun, quick-paced, balanced (depending on who your teammates are). We rarely ever get complaints. Hardest part would be when a partner doesn't communicate that they'll be late, calling out, "no call, no shows".

I guess take all employer reviews with a grain of salt, because I was asked to submit this survey after applying to other jobs- it’s not uncommon to apply for other jobs when you’re dissatisfied with your employer. I think it’s time for me to try my hand at something new is all, Starbucks truly lives up to it’s amazing reputation for full and part time employees, but it’s MUCH better for full time employees.

Great culture would be a great first job for many. Very diverse environment. I learned a lot about time management and how to deal with people. Great place to pick up soft skills for your next opportunity.

the beginning was sweet but by the end of five years it was sour. thanks for nothing...the only good thing about working there for so long was the stock cash out at the end. Then my last pay check was garnished to pay for the remainder of my insurance policy...
This company is great to work. I've been here longer than anticipated but, I don't mind it. They have great benefits and treat you well. You also receive great discounts and perks. My family and I had to quickly evacuate our city due to Hurricane Irma and Starbucks was more than willing to assist. The only down side is that it is retail so sometimes customers aren't the best but, overall they are usually nice and understanding.

Hated everything about it from the over needy and complicated customer to the cringe worthy company mission statement. Maybe it was just the district that i worked in but my starbucks career was definitely not a time in my life I enjoyed.
Shift Manager (Former Employee) – Carlsbad, CA – September 24, 2017
I loved this job! You get to work with some talented amazing people and provide high quality coffee to customers. People appreciate what you do and for some, their cup of coffee is the highlight of their day. It's nice making a difference in people's lives on a daily basis.

Starbucks gives extremely good benefits, even for part time. As long as you work about 20 hours a week, you're eligible for discounted health, vision, and dental insurance. Other than insurance, there is 401k and free restricted stocks through Fidelity, free Spotify premium, and sick hours and vacation hours.It is very stressful though, from working weird hour patterns, to managing time in a fast pace environment, there is always something to think a head on. Since I usually work evenings, it feels like I'm always picking up things.
