    I have been working at Starbucks full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Less promotional items compared to a real Starbucks. Health benefits provided by your employer.

    Cons

    Fast paced, busy, management typically is not directly underneath starbucks, but your employer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give us an in-store GM who works on the floor.

    I worked at Starbucks part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The work load is tolerable
    Socializing with customers is a plus

    Cons

    The scheduling does not optimize work flow
    There are procedures that hinder work timelines
    Education is not valued for retail side employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate should provide operational training for general store managers, and should require a bachelors degree to to a general store manager.
