    Starbucks Employee, October 2021

  • Best thing

    Fellow employees

    Worst thing

    very rude customers who treat you badly, little consideration from management, unsociable hours (eg. 3pm-11.30pm), poor management and hiring of staff that are incapable, poor benefits of working there.

    2.7

    Starbucks Employee, October 2021

  • Best thing

    It's a fun creative job with lots of new skills. There's always people around.

    Worst thing

    Higher ups only care about the bottom line and not about the day to day runnings or staffs quality of life. Many false promises. Will rather employ externally rather than promote from within

    5.2

    Starbucks Employee, October 2021

  • Best thing

    The pay rate is actually OK for the time being...

    1.5

    Starbucks Employee, September 2021

  • Best thing

    Free coffee and 30% discount.

    Worst thing

    Starbucks don’t care about the frontline staff, they don’t care about coffee. They don’t care about customer connection. They only care about making money from deliveries (UberEats/Just Eat/Deliveroo) and giving stores minimal labour to handle it and their idea of rewards are points on a website that no one uses because nothing works on it.

    5.2

    Starbucks Employee, August 2021

  • Best thing

    5.8

    Starbucks Employee, July 2021

  • Best thing

    Worst thing

    Segregation between night and day staff.

    6.2

    Starbucks Employee, June 2021

  • Best thing

    Making the drinks, some nice customers, some nice staff.

    Worst thing

    Managers can be quite toxic. There’s a very strong “family work ethic” at Starbucks so if you need to take a day off you can be shamed for “betraying the team” or similar.
