    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...
