My typical day at Starbucks: Change screw shoes and ware apron-log in -greet customers, take orders, make payments,make various drinks, toast breads, write daily log - daily clean - settle accounts -cleaning-log off. I learned how to serve customers, how to make group work,how to work under pressure and also some other communication skills. The company has work inspection by weekly and monthly. it was well organized. They also have safety course online and small meeting with sales manager.Furthermore, they care employees a lot and celebrate birthdays for employees. The hardest part of the job is in the rush hour. When a 10 m line in the front of cashier, we had to know how to cooperate with others and how to improve work efficient. The most enjoyable part of the job is greet customers.different personal characteristics taught me a lot communication skills and made a lot of friends.

Great place to work. Biggest downside is that they ask alot of you. And although work life balance is preached it's not respected. Be willing to dedicate all you time, and getting away from your phone will be a thing of the past.

Working at Starbucks like most other restaurant is a very fast paced work environment and requires the ability to multi task. The most enjoyable part of working there were the people I got to work with, they made it fun to be there.

The people you work with are usually great, however, at both locations I worked at, there was drama. Regular customers are usually rude and don't tip, and tips are so minimal. You get denied a raise because you "make tips." Lots is expected from you, especially early in the morning and when it's busy.If you can't keep up, this isn't the job for you.
Enjoyable work atmosphere and excellent customer relationships.

Starbucks is a leader in the customer service industry for a reason. The company has taught me to enhance the customer experience by connecting and making best moments with them. We build relationships with each customer that walks in the door. Along with exceptional customer service, Starbucks has taught me to multi-task in a high traffic environment, while remaining calm and collected. The most enjoyable part of the job is the partners who work there.
Great benefit packages, for part-time workers, also.

It's busy on daily basis. But working at Starbucks, you will learn how to deal with customer and of course, give the best customer service ever. It's always fun working at Starbucks especially when you finally become family with your co-workers or as we always call them, partner.

Really great atmosphere to work with, all the employees were very nice and easy to get along with. Most customers were very nice and respectful and although the store could get busy it was always manageable with the team. The free beverages while working is definitely an added bonus.
