Productive Workplace
Barista (Former Employee) –  Pasay CityJanuary 22, 2020
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

very fun workplace
Barista (Current Employee) –  MandaueJanuary 16, 2020
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

Very active workplace. Challenging and customer oriented. Very jolly personality is a super plus. Career advancement if you are willing and passionate. Salary leaves something to be desired.

Worst company! Poor management!
Barista (Former Employee) –  Eastwood CityNovember 25, 2019
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.

Fun work culture and well compensated partners
Barista/Coffee Master/Barista Trainer (Former Employee) –  Baguio City, BenguetJune 16, 2019
Starbucks culture is very light and easy going, each partner is pushed to be a better version of their self. Partners are compensated well through salary, bonuses and other benefits plus each partner gets a minimum of 2 days off weekly. Starbucks, specifically in the north of manila is a good place to work in just avoid issues or people trying to look for issues even if they are part of the higher management team.
Pros
Bonuses, employee beverages, partner snack, 2 offs weekly, home away from home
Cons
Long hours during weekends and holidays because of over time. Management become biased at times.

Different and Fun Workplace yet Challenging and Average Minimum Pay
Barista (Former Employee) –  ManilaMay 13, 2019
Hardest part is the rate of promotional materials you have to learn and unlearn constantly. I love that they are always for the growth of the employees. Nice workplace if you're just looking for experience. Hiring process is VERY long. Takes a month.
Pros
Free Food (Pastry and Drink)
Cons
Long hours, Changing schedules
