BARISTA & CUSTOMER SERVICE (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 15 May 2018
Starbucks is not like any other coffee shop that I have worked before. e.g Tim Hortons. Starbucks is a place where you can really give a chance to yourself as a person to really innovate yourself. The condition of management is excellent as they they a systematic rules that provides them with a basic knowledge how the store should be run.
Free drinks and 15 mins breaks
Short hours e.g 4 to 5 hrs a day if you're part-time

I like the fast paced environment. It was really fun getting to learn how to make all of the drinks. I liked that there was a very specific system being run because it helped things run more efficiently. I wasn't a huge fan of the particular management team, there were a lot of rude supervisors but I enjoyed my coworkers!
Discount, fast paced work environment made shifts go by quickly, fun job, fun coworkers
Rude customers, rude management at this particular location
Barista/Customer Service Agent (Current Employee) – Chestermere, AB – 27 January 2017
Not the best job I've had, the experience has been less than admirable. I regularly work with people at the beginning of adult life. It has little to do with engineering but I've learned to work effectively with unskilled workers to accomplish the collective goal of providing a nurturing environment for our customers.
Free coffee, diverse worker pool
early mornings, workplace drama, nontechnical work
Barista/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 13 July 2016
A typical day at work is a fun day. The co-workers are nice and easy to get along with, learning to make drinks is the funnest part of the job. the hardest part of the job is when we are short-staffed, and there are a lot of people in line, in both the cafe and drive-thru.
Cashing & customer service (Current Employee) – Square One Shopping Mall – 15 October 2015
During the time that i have worked at Starbucks coffee i have learned a lot. I have become a more experienced customer interacter. By this I mean that i have been able to considerably create bonds with my daily customers, building relationships with them, and having a nice talk or laugh when they are on their way to their busy day. I have also experienced a great deal of team work and communication with my co-workers. We work together in harmony to make sure our customer have the best experience and service at our store each time they come by. I have mastered the action of multi-tasking and fast-paced working. Since Starbucks is a well known company, we get many loyal and daily customers who are commited to the customer to partner relationships and bonds they have built over time. Working at a fast - pace while maintaining a good self impression is something very important for each partner. We wana make sure that our customers know we are happy to serve them and help them make their days a lot better. Susaining a oupositive attitude towards our customers and any given struggle or situation is one of our goals as partners at Starbucks. It is something we must constantly work for everyday that we step on the floor.

Starbucks is a wonderful place for a student or young adult looking to develope their customer skills. Partners work in a faced paced environment, handle cash and are trusted to do daily and weekly tasks of their own. Starbucks offers great benefits for even part-timers, stocks that build up cash flow, partner beverages on every break, 30% off partner discount on all merchendise, and partner markouts (one free pound of coffee or tea).
The only bad thing I could even possibly say about this company is that unfortunately I had a manager who bullied her employees and has fired empolyees for unjust reasons but Starbucks has great Human Resources and the issues will be resolved.
free beverages, free coffee beans, free tea markout, great discounts
