Barista / Cashier (Former Employee) – Newfoundland and Labrador – 19 August 2017
A typical day at work included sociable and friendly customers. I learned new ways on how to make the coffees and prepare some food. The workplace was fun to be around. The hardest part of the job was to please all customers when we're low on staff. While the most enjoyable part was the attendance of the customers that came in on a regular basis.

Overall working at Starbucks was fun especially getting to know your coworkers. It can be stressful at times (frappie hour) but at the end of the day its still fun. The benefits for employees are good.

Absolutely great company to start off your career journey. Tons of growth potential. I don't see many other companies provide such growth opportunities from their entry level positions all the way to management and even head office!
Barista/Cashier (Current Employee) – North York, ON – 15 August 2017
You're always expected to make a connection with every single customer even if your line is out the door. Always been extremely flexible with me for scheduling. I work at a busy location which almost always has a line, never a second to spare. Love my free drinks & coffee
Free drinks while working, Free 1lb of coffee every week
Barista/Cashier (Current Employee) – Ottawa West, ON – 14 August 2017
Starbucks has a very structured schedule for every shift. For each shift, baristas and supervisors are each assigned a role. For example, order support, customer support, bar, on till. This makes the work environment less stressful, and more organized, and ensures positive feedback from customers. The workplace is a safe environment, and fun with the customer service aspect of the job.
Shift Supervisor/Key Holder (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 13 August 2017
Very bad management A lot of pressure at work, over scheduling you, they don't care if you're part-time, they'll still give you full time hours Never get appreciated or rewarded for the hard work you put into for the day Overall worst place to work!
Barista (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 9 August 2017
Different position throughout the shifts, which means it never get boring. Generally fun place to work, have lots of things that needs to get done. Can be pretty stressful at times when it gets busy, but people are generally nice, nothing too extreme.
Barista (Current Employee) – Victoria, BC – 9 August 2017
A day a Starbucks is a very upbeat and exciting experience. I have enjoyed all my time at Starbucks I love it so much and i can't think of any other way to thank everyone of my partners at Starbucks everyday for being such fun and loving people to working with.
Fast pace work place with opportunities to work with amazing people
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 August 2017
Although shift supervisors get paid only a little over minimum wage, with much responsibility, the job has given me many skills, from customer service to cash management and how to deal with very difficult situations. The management is different with every store manager but usually is overall good. The hardest part of the job is not being allowed to defend ones self when being treated horribly. The most enjoyable part of the job is the friendships that are made with coworkers and sometimes customers.
