Overall a great company. If you don't want to be a store manager the highest up in the company you can go is shift supervisor (unless you do cooperate) I've had a lot of issues with management in my stores I've found most of them are lazy and don't work on the floor often to help out. Some of them don't even really know how to make all the drinks. And they get weird rewards like trips for big conferences with all the other managers. That's money Starbucks could be putting into their employees but oh well. They just have their priorities a little off.
