Overall Reviews at Starbucks
Shift Manager | Philadelphia, PA | Jan 8, 2020
Not the same Starbucks it once was
Starbucks is owned by shareholders. Decisions are made at the behest of the price of shares. 2009 they let go of thousands of staff, closed hundreds of stores cause shares were falling because corporate grew to big too fast. And all the little people payed.

Excellent workplace culture of partnership
Some of the nicest and hardworking individuals of my career. Employer really make you feel valued and always giving back to employees/partners. Sorely lacking in mentorship and career-pathing and development for some work stream employees,

Great job to begin skills and allows for close interactions with customers.
This occupation was a great experience since it was my first official job. The work environment allowed me to challenge myself to new tasks, such as supervision of employees and guaranteeing the satisfaction of customers. This job gave me the opportunity to strengthen my leadership skills, starting from a barista and eventually being promoted to a shift supervisor in the span of less than two years. This job introduced me to learning how to work in a fast-paced and efficient manner. The most enjoyable part of this job was working closely with team employees and ensuring we worked together and fairly.

Fun people in a fast-paced environment
Starbucks is a fun place to meet new people and grow your passion for coffee. Flexible scheduling and the ability to accomplish goals outside of the workplace. Depending on the management, the experience can be rewarding and fun, or can be total garbage and the worst experience ever. Wish they paid more for how most customers treat you, but if you can let things roll off your back , its an easy job with great benefits.

Ok if your not solely supporting yourself
I began working for Starbucks as a barista at maybe 12-15 hours a week but due to extreme turnover I soon got more hours and was made assistant manager then manager, and my life was no longer my own. I wasn't allowed to hire and fire as I saw fit and when people would call in sick, not show up for their shifts or just quit, I had no back up and I was expected to fill in. I was working 15 hours a day a lot of the time, with virtually no help and no one cared. I had a 3 year old at home I never got to see, except on my day off, and I didn't get many of those. I was working 7 days a week and making chump change. I went through advanced training and got my coffee master certification, which nettied nothing for me in either respect or financially. I hated it.

No sense of direction
Good: diversity and friendly - workplace culture
Bad: depending on departments, some managers have no sense of directions where the company is heading and teams work in silos which contributed to service down time due to outage without effective communication.

Its fun to work at. My manager was a little bit weird but other than that it was really a great workplace. Th benefits were great as well. There is place to grow.

I got to work with hilarious and hard-working people. They cared about their customers and made sure I had the information to complete my tasks. They helped me address certain situations along with achievements. The staff made the store. I miss them!
