Starbucks is a well-known franchise. Personally my personal experience as a barista from working at one of the busiest Starbucks in Indiana (Greenfield, IN State Road 9, & New Road) was a 4/10. I have friends that are partners at other locations who have really great experiences and say it doesn't feel like work because its so fun and inviting. The atmosphere of store 2475 is just very heavy, and strict. Toxic relationships of the boss making and a barista cry or the baristas getting into an argument on the floor happened way too often. Shift managers abusing their power. The order constantly being messed up, corners being cut at the extent of safety, and health is not okay. The favorite part of my time at Store 2475 was the regulars we had and even the new customers the location had a lot of travelers since it was right off of 2 highway exits. I enjoyed the schedule being set three weeks out. The best way to enjoy your time there was to keep your head down, keep quite, and do as you are told.
Free drinks throughout shift, free food item per shift, can keep food going out the same day, spotify premium, health insurance, cup fund, free lb of coffee per week.
Short breaks, usually short staffed, alot of call ins, criticism
