Waiter (Former Employee) – Rathmines, County Dublin – 8 December 2019
It was an experience working at Starbucks I acquired such great skills such as working as a barista working in a fast Environment and I would love to get another job at Starbucks because I’m looking for a job
Worked with the company for 4 years starting as barista and worked my way up to supervisor the supervisor rate started at .15c more than minimum wage lots expected of you and a lot of pressure for no reward. Free lunches was a perk as supervisor but baristas paid half price. Management were terrible, staff turnover was constant, left the company after 4 years without a thank you or goodbye.
stressful and busy at all times , and sometimes payment isnt enough fir the anount of work done , made lots of friends at wokr and enivronment was quite good tbh. am willing to develope myslef by going up the ranks and i did even in starbucks as i am a supervisor now.

Worst management. The managers think that being rude and not being nice is the way to control staff. I was working as the team leader there and my general manager always yells at me ‘ why’re you so nice to the staff, you’ve to rude’ I know that’s not the way to do it. Brainless people are all over. I cannot handle the pressure there and I left. It’s a sinking ship
Worst management 40minutes break being rude understaffed
Quite busy throughout the day making drinks and serving food. Gained great experience dealing with customers and getting to know the regulars.Had a great relationship with fellow workers and enjoyed chatting with customers everyday

Basically the worst job of my entire life. The company doesn’t care at all about its employees and they expect way too much from a minimum wage barista job. Every few months you’ll get added jobs on top of the huge work load they already expect you to do.
You work a lot get not much in return some managers think they are God almighty, they head office is always on your hear if you don't lick their a**es you'll get nowhere. Wages are a joke after years they'll give you a few cents thinking that's a lot barely above minimum wage.
I have really enjoyed working in the Nutgrove store. It is a very friendly place to work in with lovely staff and some of the best customers. The best part of the job is engaging with the customers. The hardest part of the job is progressing past supervisor
Fun place to work as the staff work very much as a team.
Barista (Former Employee) – Waterloo – 14 May 2019
Overall I enjoyed my time working here as I got to know my colleagues very well and we formed a very good team together. I learned a lot during my time here and grew as a person. The importance placed on the customers experience gave the café a nice environment as each barista got to know dozens of customers through learning their name and order.
After two years the work became extremely repetitive
