I just got extremely frustrated by the empty promises, the lack of diligence on the part of the management, the toxicity of the work culture, terrible hours.

This was definitely my biggest fear about coming into this company! I do have to say though, it's not NEARLY as difficult as you'd think! All of their drinks are essentially based off of a couple base line recipes, and then modified by substituting different flavours/milks/etc. Once you have learned the basic recipes and are comfortable enough with all of the flavouring options you have to work with, making each drink is as simple as subbing one ingredient for another! It all is taught to you with routine, so it is super easy to fall into the habit of drink crafting! Not at all as overwhelming as I assumed it'd be, and Starbucks holds all of their barista trainers to such a high standard that I assure you'll be super comfortable with asking any questions you feel the need to!
