Barista (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – 22 November 2013
The most enjoyable part of the job is the people, both the employees and the customers. The hardest part of the job is leaving a shift with work left incomplete. I like to finish tasks. My co-workers are perfectly lovely people who enjoy people and have fun and work. We do look out for one another and keep the workplace friendly. Our management is fully committed to having the culture be friendly and welcoming. What I've learned is that I enjoy having more responsibility.

Gave me more anxiety, stress and depression. I had a love hate relationship with starbucks. Its time for my chapter to end.There is alot of racism and favouritism in this company. Baristas often steal and slack off.

The workplace culture at Starbucks is amazing. The partners all get along and the perks of free coffee and other beverages is fun. There are problems with turnover and sales expectations with limited staffing.
