Bad management, no regard for employees
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Kilkenny11 November 2019
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.

Would not recommend
Barista (Former Employee) –  Dublin23 October 2019
Baristas are seen as disposable and upper management are often gossipy. Pay is ridiculously low considering what is expected of you. Would not recommend to anyone.
Pros
3 free tall drinks per shift
Cons
Upper management, pay, hectic environment.

Avoid working here
Barista (Former Employee) –  Ireland1 August 2019
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.

A job for someone who cannot find one.
Barista (Former Employee) –  Dublin24 April 2019
First of all I loved the staff I worked with they were all fantastic, but the company itself (upper management), although calling their employees ''partners'' really see them as expendable and replaceable. Staff turnover is ridiculous. Pay is comical considering there is a maximum effort expectation from minimum compensation and a lack of intensive. Training is minimal in the beginning and is relegated to the baristas (who are trying to hit targets, while training and at the same time being paid the bare minimum). Would not recommend, unless you enjoy making coffee and cleaning toilets.
Pros
Free coffee
Cons
Terrible contracts, bad pay, terrible upper management.

Fun and easy enough, good student job
Barista (Former Employee) –  Dublin22 January 2019
Easy enough, flexible hours which was handy for working around my college hours. Most people working there are sound, the odd customer is a pain but most just want a coffee to go
Pros
coffee tastings, staff discount, flexible hours
Cons
customers can be awkward at times, you smell like stale coffee and syrups after every shift

Expected to work long hours with maximum output. Pay grade is very unsatisfactory. Should treat all staff on ground level with more respect and expect more if treated properly.

Busy workplace, High turnover.
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.

productive and fun workplace
Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Dublin9 July 2018
1. Typical day at work :
- Great customer service, working with people from all over the world
- Supervisor responsibility every shift.
2.
- coach employees, communicate regularly with customers,working under pressure. Running the store operations during scheduled shifts. This includes opening and closing the store, supervising employees.
Ensuring proper cash management and cash register policies.
3. Management
- very nice and friendly people
4. The hardest part of the job
- is managing partners under my control when it is busy.
5.
- Working in Starbucks for more than 2 years, I could say that I gained managerial skills and interpersonal skiils.The most enjoyable part of the job its when you see that customers are happy and enjoing beeing in our store.
6.
- have learned a lot of thing in Starbucks.
It is actually my first decent job, where I have a decent salary and time for myself.
It's not easy come to another country where you can't speak their language.
But no only Starbucks but people that I worked and I work showed me that not is impossible.
I started as a barista and today I am a Supervisor.

Multinational Kompany
Barista (Current Employee) –  Dublin23 February 2018
Starbucks is a good way to start the working life in Ireland, becouse you are in touch with customers and the multiculture workmates. The worse part in this sector, not only in starbucks, obviously is the low salary.
Cons
really large shifts

Good company to start
Senior Barista (Current Employee) –  Dublin8 November 2017
This market of stores in Ireland is not run by Starbucks Corporate so do not go in expecting the same benefits. This group is great, they do offer many perks and they do work hard to try and create a supportive environment with bonuses and well-structured operations. The hardest part of the job is long hours that can sometimes be required as a store manager, but the most enjoyable part of the job is the people you get to work with so sometimes it all works out. This is a great job for developing as a leader and business manager, I continue to learn every day.
Pros
free coffee
Cons
Long hours
