I Work For Starbucks

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 42 People

    Newbie.

    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...

    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...
