    Starbucks Employee, April 2022

  • Best thing

    Free drinks and some regulars

    Worst thing

    Having to do other people's homes that I am not paid for because they haven't done it and it affects me and doing more than I am physically capable each shift

    1.1

    Starbucks Employee, April 2022

  • Best thing

    Others baristas and shift managers

    Worst thing

    Store managers and time demands

    1.9

    Starbucks Employee, April 2022

  • Best thing

    The other barista's are cool and lots of them are students so you find common ground really easily. Other than that, nothing.

    Worst thing

    Lack of staff, and staff are blamed for the shortage. Mangement will talk about your personal affairs behind your back, accuse you of lying or will cry on shift. Too strict for minimum wage, like oh no I have one extra piercing that doesn't change how I do my job. Supervisors are either extremely lazy or overworked and taken for granted, no inbetween. Inadequate training, manager will only hire previous starbucks experience so training doesn't have to be completed. No staff meetings or regular contact. Passive aggressive messages and emails. Will make you work even if you are sick at work. Does not adhere to the 48 hour sickness rule. Doesn't facilitate for mental health issues and will assume the barista is lying or pretending it is worse. No support when consistently rude customers approach you. Have been heckled, and robbed in the store. The place should be shut down personally.

    2.4

    Starbucks Employee, March 2022

  • Best thing

    Training, when there is time. Fellow partners. If your willing to move up they have good training opportunities. Free coffee on shift.

    Worst thing

    Under a lot of pressure in busy stores to just get drinks out, no matter how bad it’s made. I’ve worked in quieter stores and they care more about the quality of the drinks.

    5.1

  • Best thing

    Starbucks Employee, February 2022

  • Best thing

    The team environment is amazing. We all genuinely care for each other and our store

    Worst thing

    The pay is awful for the position I am in. Not paid any over time so I work for free which is expected often by upper management.
    Even though I have the position of manager I can’t make any decisions unless upper management says yes first.
    We are constantly told and forced to deal with complaints that are things completely out of control, it makes me not want to go into work. For all the good things to us a pat on the back is all we get

  • 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

  • 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.
