As a barista, i cater with customer's favorite coffee which enlightens their need and heart. Here, barista is also a rotating cashier as well. Therefore, a very good presentation, communication and ethical customer service is very crucial because as a front liner in such sector, i have to delight the customers to be more customer-oriented.
Pros
Staff purchases
Cons

A typical day at work requires you to check for supplies in case of shortage on your required shift. Working hour is 8 hours including a 50-minute break. The workplace culture is either fast-paced or relaxed depending on the branch you are in. The management was fair. However, what I do not like about the management is the constant bossing. The manager does not show qualities of a leader but rather a dictator. The manager should encourage their staffs, giving us morale boosts especially during peak hours where orders are plentiful. Keep in mind that not all branches are like this. Depending on the branch, you might get a manager who is the opposite. Overall though, I still enjoyed working there. Made good friends and given opportunity to learn about coffee.
Pros
Free lunches, relaxing environment, opportunity to learn about coffees, fast job advancement
Cons
Fair pay, bad management (depending on branch)

Starbucks is best and fun place to work. The teamwork is important here. Since I worked at airport branch, it's quite challenging because of many customers. The hardest part of the job is to make sure you are able to deliver preferred beverages to customers. The most enjoyable part of the job is you get to learn and appreciative about coffee and the partners are helpful and cheerful.
