Previously work at Starbucks Coffee Bukit Mertajam was a great experience for me. My senior and manager was very helpful. I had a fun working environment as less stress doing my job. Starbucks Coffee is a good company to work because of its stability for many years. Full of benefits for the staff.
Free staff meal, staff discounts, uniforms
Peak seasons example school holiday will be very busy to entertain customer
i have been working in Starbucks twice before this, and as for my experience working there it was very fun and happy go lucky working environment, most of the people tought that when we work as barista or waiter or others social work you couldn't get much knowledge or self improvement, well they wrong... even thought i work and resign from Starbucks twice due to continue study , i actually learn quite a lot of soft skills that can help my in my future, which is communication, team work, multitasking , and much more. Really recommended to all the spm leaver to work there while waiting for continue study or others things that u want to do in your life.
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.
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.
Free lunches, relaxing environment, opportunity to learn about coffees, fast job advancement
Fair pay, bad management (depending on branch)
In starbucks you will learn everything from how to make the beverage and another new thing such as coffee knowledge. You will be able to learn from company until achieve to be a coffee master. Best work environment and you will feel relaxed even you are in high volume store. You also are able to expand your career from barista to management real quick
This job suits people who loves coffee and also eager to learn on how to make coffees and teas. This job also gives you a lot of benefit such as you are given an option to choose which beverages and foods would you like to have on break time. You can also enjoy vouchers from them and also discounts for staff only. You learn how cooperate with your team while doing drinks for customer.
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.
Best place to work, the working environment is fun. You can achieve more if you work hard and You can learn a lot about coffee making and the specialty of each drinks in Starbucks.

I worked as barista. It isn't very hard typically the working schedule's are manageable. I've learn a lot new hings while working with Starbucks. Such as "how to make coffee and also frappuccino's". Plus the most enjoyable is the working environment is very gleeful. the cheerful environment makes the barista's to lose their stress.
