Being a barista started out as the best job I've ever had, but as soon as our store manager had to transfer things immediately went downhill. Hours were cut for baristas so they can now only work 5 hour shifts, which means that in a regular work week if you work 7 days in a row you still cannot make full time hours. Many baristas have to find new jobs simply because they can no longer live with the amount of money they're making. Also, there is an overhearing issue. There are so many of us that work in one tiny store that hardly anyone gets hours. When I first started their were five shift supervisors and maybe eight baristas and because we were a tiny store inside of a Chapters that worked for us. We were rarely understaffed and everyone maintained the minimum 20 hours to qualify for benefits. Now there are 13 baristas and people are being scheduled 5 hours a week and are expected to live off of that. Also, when the new manager arrived people became very gossipy. There is one supervisor in particular who has gone on to tell the new manager to "look out" for specific baristas because they are "bad people" simply because she doesn't like them. She has also admittedly told multiple people that she is trying to get someone fired, WHAT!?!?! It is insane to me that she is doing all of this with the intention of getting ahead in the company and no one seems to care about the way she is making her coworkers feels. When I first started here, we were a team and when we added new members it was awesome, our team was bigger. I still love every single barista there, but the attitude andplus... high school sequel nature is not an environment that any one should become accustomed to.moins
Starbucks provides a great work environment, fun and upbeat workplace where there's always something to do. Management is trained to coach employees rather than to manage them, which is very helpful and uplifting.
Beaucoup d'opportunités chez Starbucks. Le management de HQ sont très souvent en magasin. On ne peut pas porter de jeans ni de chandails avec des motifs ou un logo. Il dépend avec qui on travaille, mais l'ambiance est relax. Quand c'est occupé, on travaille vite et il y arrive souvent des accidents avec le café
