Great way to meet new people
Barista (Current Employee) – Halifax, NS – 2 February 2016
Starbucks is a great job, if only minimum wage. It can be mentally and physically exhausting during peak times of the day, but if you have a good team and a good manager, it can flow quite well.
Starbucks provides health benefits without a required amount of tenure, which can be stressful for employees of other organizations.
A typical day would consist of you interacting with customers, and filling their orders for food, or drink. They can have questions regarding those products, or about their loyalty program.
If you're a supervisor, it can consist of also preparing the daily cash deposit, placing coin orders as needed, and then taking it to the bank. Supervisors are also expected to monitor daily use of required products, such as milk. As such, orders are placed by supervisors weekly for different distributors.
Free beverages while on shift, one free pound of coffee/box of tea per week, health benefits available immediately
Constantly walking, bending, and lifting. Sales targets. Work ethic of coworkers can be an issue.
