Living in seattle i have come to realise one thing. Starbucks, is an evil corporation. In every single area they move into, they drive out litterally all of the local business. @%^*(& starbucks. Firstly, for those of you who have fallen prey to there ingenious marketing, there drinks are 3 to 5 times overpriced. I have asked employees who say, yes, our pricing is rediculous. A good cup of cofee from a respectable business should cost you about a dollar to three dollars, depending on the size. Starbucks ranges from 3 dollars upwards to 6 dollars.

 

 

Um, I hate Starbucks, too, but a cup of coffee there costs about $1.75.

 

If you want the real good shit, go to Europe. I had some of the best cappuccino ever in Prague and Krakow, and awesome Vienesse coffee, where they put whipped cream on the top. I never really drank any cappuccino before I went there, but that's all I was drinking. Plus you could smoke cigarettes everywhere which made it 30x more awesome.

Starbucks is shit, not that i'm some huge coffee drinker, i dont even care what it tastes like. my girlfriend works for them, and i can honestly say that they are just as shitty to their employees as walmart ever has been. you are not allowed to work overtime. if you get over 40 hours in a week they will write you up and possibly fire you for it. they'll schedule you for say 30-40 hours in a week to make it look like you are going to make some good money on that paycheck, then they will call you at least 1-2 of those days and tell you that you have to come in late, or tell you not to come in at all cutting your hours down to 15-20 for the week. they overprice their drinks (obviously) and pay their employees barely over minimum wage. if they call you in for a shift that you aren't schedule to work and you say no, they will cut almost all your hours out for the next week. they treat their employees like they belong to starbucks not like people.

That sounds like the manager at just that starbucks. I am sure the headquarters is not making schedules. I can see them saying no over time, but that is about it.

 

The manager might over schedule and have to cut back because he does not know what he is doing.

I can handle the "yes sir" attitude in the right circumstances, not but in a retail store. That's probably why I haven't been able to hold down a retail job for more than a few months, while I could hold down the movie theater job for four years. I love coffee, but I'm sure they could smell the contempt coming off me from miles away. I hate wearing uniforms, too.

You sure would hate what I do.
