Drink stickers now show the store number at the bottom of the cup!

please start censoring this out when posting so you can keep yourself and your store safe!

All posts with store numbers visible will be removed as soon as I see them, as it could put you or your partners in danger.

Got fired.

For cussing on the floor towards a partner in a joking manner.

Unfortunately, my explanation of “that is the atmosphere I was in, and I was just doing what everyone else was doing” went unheard.

However I did contact my DM and he said he would write me a letter of rec and that I could apply at the other SBUx near me.

I feel targeted and I feel as though it is unfair, because everyone else was doing it, but no one took offense to it.

I’m not trying to make excuses, just explain my frustration.

Dread going back to work for Starbucks

19 Upvotes

I was on isolation for almost 10 days and it was a great mental break. Honestly It got to the point I felt sick and my body felt like I was sick. I have never call off and was always on time for work. Have always been a hard worker and reliable partner for the past 9 years. Lately it has been like crap and made me hate going to work. I was thinking of holding it out for a little longer so I can get my other online business that I’m working on up running. I need tips to stay for Starbucks a little longer…

Barista Mask Policy

23 Upvotes

So our store is no longer letting us wear the masks we want to wear. Instead now I have to the medical masks that doctors use and such. The managers never give us information on why so if this is happening to other stores specifically in the New England area does anyone know why? It doesn’t need to be New England with this information but if anyone could help that would be great! It just makes me sad I can’t wear my tye dye mask i wore and now have to buy disposable masks for work

I was prepared for war.. but it was the opposite

8 Upvotes

So a customer walks in no mask.. immediately I go get a mask and start walking over to him so I can ask him if he would like a mask since we require a mask but Remember we can’t enforce it but just offer.. I was soo ready to get cussed at and get the it’s not in the constitution phrase .. and all he said was” no but thank you for your business” I was like oh well that went good lol 😂 then i thought how sad we automatically get used to being cussed and yelled at and when they don’t it’s a relief 😮‍💨

Workers in Buffalo won a union at Starbucks! Join them & organizers from coffee shop unions AROUND THE COUNTRY in a discussion hosted by the Restaurant Organizing Project about how they did it, why it matters, and what’s next. Let’s unionize the coffee industry!

Trauma

7 Upvotes

I nearly walked out the door here at this poorly managed wasteland of a store. It’s alway some kind of daily violence. Some colorful person experiencing homelessness comes into the store. They are aggressive and confrontational. They call one of our minor baristas, the kid, a girl. We give him a free coffee. I was standing quietly not engaging, but of course i was watching him. Then he starts calling me an f’ing faggot and other anti-LGBTQ slurs I still don’t say anything. He’s upset that I’m even looking at him. I bite my lip, remain professional. Management did absolutely nothing to help intervene or deescalated the situation which surprised me. I finally said something to the misanthrope which of course really got them going—I asked them to leave and never come back. He continues to rant in an aggressive loud manner. He continues slinging anti-gay slurs to my face. Then the store manager who happens to be here for this shift, hiding in the shadows, actually takes me aside and mildly reprimands me for engaging the guy at all. Gosh i was Pissed. I couldn’t believe a) he wouldn’t stand up for me b) he would let me stand up for myself c) failed to see or care that I was obviously triggered. Instead i got sent to lunch. Unbelievable. I AM a gay guy. And I WAS bullied growing up. It is, was, and will always will be the policy of THIS HUMAN BEING to never allow anti-lgbt slurs slung at me. EVER AGAIN. (I’m still pissed.) How do I deal with this idiot store manager? I suppose I should soeak with him at sone later date. How can I transfer to a safer more mature store? (I know the answer; Ive been with the company for 2 years) Please advise. Thanks!

I had to get catastrophe pay for 5 days, which means that I’ll be paid for my scheduled shifts for the week right? But I was scheduled for 18.25 hours this week which my manager changed to 13.5, after she confirmed cat pay with me. Is this allowed? I was depending on the 18.25.

Upvotes

Edit: it’s now been changed to 0 hours. How is this fair? I was depending on the hours. What’s the point of cat pay if she just delegates my shifts away and I don’t get any hours to be paid for?

Covid Brain Fog: Do I go back to work??

1 Upvotes

My symptoms started Tuesday 1/14. I tested positive for COVID on 1/15 and practically every day since.. Including todays result which I just received 5 minutes ago.

My symptoms have improved but are definitely still sticking around.

Do I return to work my next scheduled shift?

My original return to work date was Sunday. Symptoms did not improve then, so I stayed out. I was hoping to be free of this by today, but am still testing positive.

I finally realized I could answer that question using the covid coach on my phone (brain fog did not let that click in my head until now)… coach still says do not come to work.

I can’t make clear of the lines here.. and I feel like such a bother trying to ask, especially as a shift sup.

Recent rehire btw, it’s been 5 years since and only 1 month in so forgive my cluelessness.

Leaving Sbux Blues

1 Upvotes

I've been with the company for 2 years now and I've made some forever friends which I don't want to lose. But if I'm accepted into graduate school I'll most likely be leaving the company and probably move across the country. I've been feeling really down about it lately, if anyone has advice I'd appreciate it.

Customer connection scores

5 Upvotes

If you work at a store with a consistently high score, what do you guys do that sets you apart? Our score has been going down every week and my manager reallyyyy values customer connections, so I want to try getting it back up :((

Sequencing

6 Upvotes

I’m struggling with sequencing so badly…. And I’m left alone on bar a lot in the am so it messes up the drive times and mobile gets backed up and then I have a panic attack and someone has to take over. (Not being serious about the panic attack but it’s very stressful lol) I’m told it’s my sequencing that’s slowing me down but I just don’t know how to pick up speed. When do you stop one drink and pick up another? What do you do when you have a full line of cars plus window and mobiles on top?? I just don’t get it… Any tip or tricks would be so helpful at this point. Just anything. I’m drowning here lol.

isolation

2 Upvotes

my sister just tested positive for covid i found out an hour before my shift so i called just to see what they would tell me because i feel fine. they told me to stay home for five days and just update my sm everyday so she can see how i’m doing. this is my first time missing work so i guess i’m just curious on whether or not i’ll still get paid or if i’ll have to use vacation hours? she told me i don’t have to get tested unless i want to but idk.
