Empresa Agradável de trabalhar
caixa, limpeza, estoque, barista (Former Employee) –  Dublin, Irlanda4 August 2018
O Starbucks foi uma experiência que tive fora do país, portanto, em sua avaliação deve-se considerar as diferenças culturais que permeavam o ambiente.
Mas a empresa em si, pagava muito bem, seguia a lei rigorosamente, o que eu acho muito bom tanto para eles como para os empregados. a gerência era ótima, acessível e compreensiva. No dia-a-dia trabalhávamos com muita pressão, o que incomodava um pouco, e as diferenças culturais as vezes dificultavam a comunicação e as relações e o horário de trabalho era muito puxado. Mas aprendi muito neste emprego, principalmente, com as diferenças e com a comunicação intensa com o cliente.

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.

Amazing Atmosphere with so much passion
Starbucks Barista (Former Employee) –  Limerick18 June 2018
Amazing atmosphere, so much passion in every worker. Regulars are more like friends than customers. So many opportunities in the company to make friends and find a passion for coffee.

Overall good workplace
Barista (Current Employee) –  Limerick29 May 2018
Few changes needed but overall a general good place to work. Good job security and plenty of chances to progress. Would not discourage someone from applying for a job here as the people I work with are good hard working people that enjoy a laugh at the same time. Thus creating a fun place to be during the shift
Pros
3 free drinks per day is nice.
Cons
Late closes and early opens 7 days a week.

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.

No opportunity to grow
Barista (Current Employee) –  Omni Park, County Dublin9 May 2018
Management disruptive of positive working environment, would not recommend to anyone looking to work with coffee. Franchised company that does not represent views of actual corp. Expect maximum output for minimum input at expense of staff.
Pros
free coffee
Cons
semantic management issues.

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

manager pas à sa place
Employé polyvalent (Former Employee) –  County Dublin10 October 2017
Cette entreprise est presque parfaite . Le seul bémol ç'est que mon 1 er manager est partit en congé maternité . Elle à été remplacée par un manager qui arrivait du Starbucks de l'aéroport de Melbourne et qui à essayé d'appliquer les mêmes méthodes à un Starbucks de village ( Malahide ) d'ou un certain décalage entre le public et ses méthodes .
Pros
Ambiance agréable
Cons
Trop de procédures
