Would not recommend this job if you don’t excel in working at fastpased environments. You don’t get very much training and you have to learn everything fast which is pretty stressful. One of my supervisors would get really annoyed with me and would never want to help me when I would have a question about something even though I’ve only been here for 2 weeks.
On an average day at Starbucks, one can expect the store to be extremely busy. Although it may become overwhelming and stressful at times when it is busy, it helps build organization and time-management skills. The team I work with is also very helpful, kind, and encouraging so if one ever feels overwhelmed, it is important to ask for help and look out for one-another. The overall environment of the store is peaceful and I have learned a lot about coffee and food services in the time that I have worked there. Since I usually work in retail clothing stores as a sales associate or stylist, I found this job to be very different and difficult to adjust to at first, but because I have worked at many places, I used my teamwork skills to help improve my experience.
Most days are busy and you're always on the move, whether it be keeping the store clean, making drinks, taking orders or preparing the food. The people you work with are very important as you need a cooperative environment with good communication skills to succeed.
Good place to develop customer service and teamwork skills
