It was usually busy. It was fun. being on bar is alot of fun but at the same time it can be stressful during rushes if you are not prepared or can't handle stress well. The store itself can be very needy. I find that because of that, alot of your time and effort is demanded which I find to be unfair. Because for most of us, this isn't a career job, and most of the time you are a student working there to make ends meet. So I found that it demanded too much. QASA is stressful, they need to chill. But to be honest in comparison to other customer service or food industry jobs that demand just as much, Starbucks is far better because they value their employees and there are great benefits such as free coffee beans, free drinks while working, good discounts and health benefits depending on how much you work.
Relatively great benefits
Poor life and work balance, especially for supervisors!
