Barista (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 24 February 2018
I learned how to connect with individuals and create more than just an employee and customer relationships. I was able to interact with people and befriend them eventually. Usually was accommodating, however, could be high stress when its busy and you just started working there.
Canada - Store manager/shift supervisor (Current Employee) – Montrèal & Edmonton – 23 February 2018
I worked for startbucks for 5 years in more than 20 stores and in the campacity of shift supervisor up to a store manager. I really enjoyed the dedication to customer service and to treating people with friendliness and heart. I loved the "families" each stores' team had and how I got to watch many of my coworkers grow as people with the help of those around them. I admire the level of organization and how the company is always evolving and trying new things. You must be able to embrace change to succeed with Starbucks .
Great benefits, free drinks, regular breaks, great regular customers, and flexible work hours
Sometimes stressful, sometimes customers are monsters
Barista (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 23 February 2018
A typical day at work varied depending on the time of the shift. Morning shifts were busy with customers and evening shifts were typically quieter but involved more cleaning. The store was incredibly well managed and that's what made working at Starbucks so enjoyable. There was an ideal balance between our manager having high expectations and understanding that as students our lives were also extremely busy.
A fun loving and happy place to interact with different people.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 21 February 2018
Working at Starbucks has been a great experience for me. Being an extrovert person I love meeting new people and through starbucks that has been possible. Every one out there is so supportive and open-minded. My work is basically at the front as a cashier like greeting customer, taking their orders, and serving them coffee.

Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 20 February 2018
Starbucks is a great company to work for, they take care of their employees (partners) and there is lots of room to advance your career. That being said you have to put in your time and work hard, nothing comes easy, but there is plenty of room to grow and develop within this company.
Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 17 February 2018
I felt this place was great, but not upper management. I felt there was to much stress and every manager I worked for was over worked. They over expect of their managers. Culture was okay, great benefits and work life balance
Shift Supervisor/Barista (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 16 February 2018
Great work environment with tons of room for improvement. Management varies location to location, but I seemed to get lucky and was always working under wonderful managers. The benefits are great, hours are flexible, and there's plenty of room for moving up in the company.
Barista (Former Employee) – Longueuil, QC – 15 February 2018
Une journée typique au travail se résume en quatre mots: service à la clientèle. Peu importe les tâches que je devais exécuter, nettoyage, préparer les boissons, etc.., offrir un bon service prenais toujours le dessu. J'ai beaucoup grandit au niveau professionnel grâce à cett emploi, car il m'a permis d'améliorer certaines mes compétences. J'ai appris à travailler plus efficacement, à rester organiser et à offrir un service à la clientèle hors-pair malgré l'achalandage aux heures de pointes. Le management était exemplaire. J'ai beaucoup appris sur la culture de l'entreprise et l'importance du rôle que joue le marketing pour des grosses entreprises. C'est vraiment grâce à cet emploi que je me suis intéressé à la comptabilité et à la gestion. L'aspect le plus difficile était de garder son calme en tout temps et ne pas se laisser emporter par la vague de stresse que dégage les clients. Tout de même, les clients et les échanges entre ceux-ci et moi-même constitut l'aspect le plus agréable de se poste.
repas gratuits, efficacité au travail
Courtes pauses, pas beaucoup d'opportunité de grandir
