Barista (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 7 October 2013
When I was working at Starbucks, I worked with a very good team of guys and girls. We were all very calm under pressure. There was an amazing support from the team. However, the team could get quite segregated, making one feel left out at times.
I could embrace my creative side while I was here, and I enjoyed seeing my regulars.
Barista (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 23 November 2017
Loved the people, flexible hours, Great medical and dental benefits available. Lots of opportunities to advance. Very busy during peak hours especially during the holidays. The first month was the hardest as there is so much to know ut once you get it, its a breeze.
quality brand but changing approach to customers that seems disingenuous
16 year partner (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 22 November 2017
culture of the company is positive and valuable leadership training is given. Most enjoyable part of the day is simply being in stores with the teams and sharing passion for coffee with customers. Its a hard job with high expectations but with the right leadership it is a positive experience and the work is rewarding. Expect long days and to work early mornings and weekends.
culture with peers positive, most of the time not micromanaged
very early mornings and long days /expectations are unrealistic
