I Work For Starbucks

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 40 People

    Starbucks has stellar benefits,

    which is why i've worked there so long. Now, I shall narrow my first-world-problems-peeves into a short list. 1. There seems to be an extreme misunderstanding of the word "need". 2. The vast majority of our patrons are indeed literate, please use that skill when ordering from...

    I'm New =]

    I just started at Starbucks three weeks ago and I love it so far. The store I work at is small, no drive-thru, and we see the same customers every single day. It's fantastic =] I'm a bit frustrated that I still haven't mastered the job; I need reminders on how to make some...

    Newbie.

    Just this month, I began my job at Starbucks. I began working the cold bar, which I liked a lot. It's easy, it has rules that don't have many exceptions. Hot bar (or espresso bar, whichever) is a different story. All the numbers! I can never remember the proportions. Just plant...

    Play Book

    Play book is one of the BEST things to happen to Bux, it has no monetary gain for Starbucks it's offering consistent customer service and taking a load off of our shoulders, the "support partner" makes me iffy on the subject seeing as it sounds like they're a janitor. Being a...
