Really good working environment if you enjoy a fast paced and customer facing role. Physically demanding if you work on the floor but it keeps you going

It does not really matter if its your first time working or not. Starbucks is a company where you feel like you belong. I was a shy person when I started my first day at Starbucks, but slowly, i feel very comfortable with every person I’ve worked with. They seem like a family. Working may be tiring and can make you stressed out once in a while. However, my experience working in Starbucks had made it an fun and enjoyable environment to work in.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
Dealing with rude customers

Learnt alot of new things, a typical day at work would be prepping coffee for next day's cold brew, preparing customer's drinks order, topping up food, collecting cups and plates, washing them, sweep and mop the floor

Everyday is learning experience. Different working ethics from each and one of your colleagues. Starbucks is known for their friendly barista. While in Starbucks, I've learn about good customer service. It is not just about preparing food and beverage, its about connecting to the customers and leaving good impressions before they leave the store.
Pros
Free Lunches
Cons
Standing for too long

I am glad to be able to gain my first working experience with Starbucks. The people i worked with have been very helpful in making me confident and brave to try new things. Especially in interacting with the customers and making the drinks. Not to forget, they have been very understanding in my commitments in school and others whenever i can't commit to work that much. If ever got the chance, i would love to be at service again.
Pros
Food is provided during breaks

A typical day at work is entirely dependent on the location of the store. Stores located in typically busy locations (e.g. shopping malls, community centers, CBD area) will face a more constant up-time than downtime.

While not impossible, work-life balance can be difficult due to the nature of shift work as well as various other circumstances. Stress management is extremely vital for this career.


Opportunities to advance your career at any point are plenty. There are also plenty of chances to connect with customers over coffee allowing you to form lasting bonds with them. At the same time, interactions with customers can be just as challenging where a level head and a strong grasp on conflict management will be advantageous.
Pros
Medical Benefits, Connection with customers
Cons
Challenging customers, Work-life balance can be difficult
