Barrista (Former Employee) –  Palo Alto, CA22 April 2013
A typical day was opening the store, cleaning and help set up machines to brew coffee and stock up on supplies and food. I learned how to be quick and learning what different types of coffee's taste like. Management was great with scheduling. Co workers were very outgoing. The hardest part was learning all the drinks. The most enjoyable was being able to interact with people and making sure they were having a good day.
Pros
benefits after 6 months
Cons
a lot of standing and you smelled like coffee all the time

Great and engaging job with hit-or-miss management
Shift Supervisor/Barista (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB19 January 2018
The problem being that the management styles change and vary so much from one location to the next that it's almost impossible to maintain the standards that Starbucks sets in place for them.

BARISTA (Former Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB18 January 2018
After working at Starbucks for a year I have nothing but positive things to say about the company as a whole and the work environment. A fantastic place to work for students putting themselves through university.
