Fun workplace, terrible management
Barista (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 9 October 2018
Starbucks gave me a lot of experience with multitasking and customer service. Workplace was fun and efficient. However, management always pushed to be more and more efficient, affecting quality that was produced, thus affecting the products that were served. More efficiency also increased stress level within the workplace that affected employees and often led to tensions and arguments. Management was many times unreasonable in resolving conflicts, and the manager was often time, the source of that conflict (trying to dig dirt on employees, calling names on employees behind their back). Perhaps that was just an experience I had from one location. Despite that, I have had the chance to gain plenty of resourceful skills from Starbucks. My only complaint would be on management.
Free drinks, cheap food. Fun workplace when management hires people who are actually productive, efficient and willing to learn.
The way management treats you, and focusing on efficiency rather than quality.
