The Starbucks I worked at had a high turnover rate due tohiring students from the university down the street. They were super great about accommodating school schedules but were also very understaffed so they were always trying to get more experienced staff to come in more often. Lots of good benefits though, such as free drinks every shift and a free - more ... pound of coffee every week. Also, they did provide benefits to people who worked more than 20 hours a week and then provided counselling and other smaller benefits to employees who worked less than 20 hours. It can be a very high paced, stressful ... - less
ProsFree drinks, free coffee/tee, flexible schedule
ConsCan be very stressful, pressured to take more hours
