"Starbucks is a difficult company when it comes to pay. I think they believe they can pay less because they offer their partners so many benefits. However, being newly graduated, $9.87 doesn't keep me afloat very much. I just wish as a company, Starbucks would look at your background and apply any raises or bonuses based on that."

"WAY underpaid, and overworked. There are too many expectations that have unrealistic time frames. But when the customer comes first how are we supposed to get done what the company wants us to get done"
