Hard work no reward awful managers/head office
Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Dublin25 July 2019
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.

Barista, Shift Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Kildare Village Outlet, County Kildare13 September 2018
The most enjoyable part of the job is learning a wide variety of skills and drink recipes, holding coffee tasting events with co-workers and socialising. The work can be draining as there is a constant high volume of customers . There are no healthcare benefits.

Amazing Staff and Customers.
Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Limerick28 May 2018
The training I received at Starbucks as very sufficient and helpful to hep me advance in new career paths. The work life balance however was not good. Too much was expected from you outside of the company. I would receive phone calls almost daily when I was not working. Overtime was always expected but never appreciated.

very good teamwork
Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) –  dublin college green21 October 2015
at starbucks as a supervisor my main responsibilities were to make sure the shop is always ready for the customers (stocked up and clean and safe ) and that the shift is running smoothly ( right person on the right place and everybody taking their breaks etc.) and the cash handling is followed and secure

the most enjoyable part of the job was the teamwork and the customer service, and get to know the customers, we have customers from loads of different countries / all over from the world :)

the hardest part was to deal with unwelcomed people in the shop as my store was in the middle of the city center so all the type of drunk and not clean people were coming to the store using the bathroom and making our customers feel uncomfortable
Pros
free coffee and discount on foods
Cons
late night shifts

If you love coffee 100%
Shift Supervisor at Starbucks (Current Employee) –  Dublin, D15 July 2015
An interesting and educational experience if you love coffee 100%, the way in which starbucks view the customer experience is the customer is king and have 100s of ways to customize your coffee
but like most jobs of this kind the pay is bad and in my opinion good for young students and people just looking to learn the art of being a Barista which is an art.

All of the staff I have encountered are 100% with their personalities, friendly outgoing and helpful.
Typical day: making sure all stock is in date constantly, making sure people are served in a timely fashion, cleaning as you go as it's a fast paced environment.
If you work early you're off for the evening, if you're on the med shift you can sleep in and still be off to see the sunset.
Management work hard and are always on the go.
The hardest part of the job is the coffee or barista work, learning the codes for the drinks and making them.

Like most time in 2015 the wage rate has fallen and the workload has increased. this has to do with 2007 economy but that's another story.
Pros
Half price food, free coffee, good hours and time for a social life.
Cons
Poor pay
