I love working there
It is a good environment to work with but in the philippines the wage is much smaller than other countries. Although the wage is above minimum in peso.

Productive Workplace
I was located at MOA where a lot of people visit therefore the work was hectic but really productive. I suggest looking for a store near where you live because work hours are too early or too late. A norm, for a coffee shop.
Pros
free lunch and drinks
Cons
low salary

My Manager and the rest fo the team all synced into one harmonious melody. I can't emphasize how great working is at Starbucks! Pressure is there, but with the team helping each other, it is super great experience.

very fun workplace
People thought that being a barista is an easy job but to be honest in this kind of work where you talk to customers everyday, having complaints, always a rush. Everything was just so tiring but fulfilling after a full shift.
Pros
free drinks and many benefits
Cons
long lines, won't be able to go out on time

working with different types of customers everyday
In Starbucks I've learned a lot of things like interacting with different kinds of people and being more extrovert. It's fun being a barista you make friends as well as you make other people happy and satisfied because of your service. Training in Starbucks is totally a world class I can't compare it to others because for me Starbucks is one of the best.

Very productive and fun workplace.
One of the best company in handling staff, they make sure that their people are knowledgeable about their products and the company vision. And one of the best in checking the quality of the products.

Fast paced work place but fun workmates
It was i work that did not deserve me but they've accepted me and had faith in me through out my training days with them. It was a worth it experience regardless of my short comings with them.

Starbucks culture is the best!
Even though the workload is not very equal to what we're getting paid I enjoyed every shift because of the other partners, so overall i think working at starbucks is a good place to start tour career

Worst company! Poor management!
worst work place culture. they pretend to be good even though they are not, they are kind in front of you, praises you but they talk behind your back. they wanted you to be transparent and tell them your work or personal problems but eventually it will be pass on the other stores and everyone will judge you. there's no such thing like partner voice, since they will listen to those senior partners or they will just listen to store managers. i though starbucks is a good platform to work with since it is a very well known company but it is not. before they focus more on their people but today they are just similar with other fast food chains who focuses more on sales and getting the work done. there is no passion at all, even in doing coffee tasting.

Knowledge of different types of coffee and makes, decorates, and serves drinks
Coffee shops get very busy, so everyone needs to be aware of what their role is and stick to it. Also be able to show flexibility in their approach in order to help other team members if necessary.
