Sunday was my last day over at Starbucks for that I’m very, very happy I left starbucks leaving them was one of the best decisions I made and I never thinked twice about that after being there for about nine months and I can’t see why I’d stay over at a place that they couldn’t add more hours that I begged countinued on in the past 3 months.
Over the first month when I joined back in December of 2015 I was happy that this work didn’t had anything to do with technolgy or customer service over the phone when I was when I was with Support.com for about a year and I was very, very happy that wasn’t the case getting involve with an ISP company anymore. That said that I liked the work with Starbucks for about three full months over there. I never hated my Co-Workers or any of my staff at all and I know that was never the case for me but they’d never put the time and effort train me on all the drinks that what frustrated me the most and my interested with Starbuck went south from there.
I’ll never say I’d hated starbucks nor I blame my co-workers for my departure with the company the training wasn’t there and I know that management didn’t put me as a priority I had some training for about the first three weeks and then stopped from there. I was pretty disappointed they stopped training me March that day and I don’t remember the day in March but that’s when I noticed they been cutting hours left and right and I notices that it wasn’t just me, it was doing it with the rest of the staff there.
I know the leave wasn’t easy that I done last week I been wanting to write about my experience. I didn’t wanted to let it dough, The saying goes, “Let live, let go and move on”. My experience I didn’t wanted to”let go” without writing my work experence first and that’s what I wanted to do. One thing I do blame is the Atlanta Regional Management and Direct Management for not getting the act together also the Store Management. I was told the Store Management was not his faullt but sortly sure it was…I’d be straight up clear is that he was part of the cost for not training me that he said he’d do never did it from the beginning and I was hoping that I would have been put in a full time position and kept putting me a part time bases. Part me I notice very well when it comes to people I can remember faces and scenes what happen the other day things that happen years ago, The Manager I know….well let’s just say that Stan my manager was pretty forgetful and the number of times I had to tell him to get me a Starbucks apron more than 4 times!!! 4! for me it is beyond and I know everyone has things to do and have to main priorities to deal with….inside I was thinking? “How is this guy even manager to beginning and its sad you’d leave me as low priority like if I was nothing to you. nothing!” Overtime I notice when I was working I came back working back in Mother’s Day on Sunday when I left from my other contracting job I was happy I got to work again….only problem I got to work for only that one day out of the month….From there I was tried of waiting and from this point I did that no one had the balls to do…. eMail the District Manager and write him about the solution that I had to get back to work (dough wish I would have done it sooner, Hell later was better than nothing,….I guess).
From there I was thinking I they sure as hell didn’t put me into more hours, the manager thought I didn’t like the job or whatever the case was but that was never the truth, I did like the job for the moment I was there for my first three months. I wasn’t going to back out and not leave Starbucks from the time I though to myself then. I wanted to keep up work for a couple of years and climb up the corp latter….now 9 months later I quitted Starbucks.
Even dough I blog will bring up lots of negatively and I might regret writing this blog, The truth is that I’m not going silent and not going to let this go someone has to speak up I know I’m not the only one with a bad job experiences and wrote this a week after I quitted. What I do feel bad now is my Co-Workers that are still working there without full-time position set-up for them. I meant a new girl that I had talked last Sunday that I just met the last day of saying to me that I’m getting really tried for fighting for hours and that I don’t blame her and so was I I can’t stand to fight hours in that quit and I quitted and I was not really happy about that and that fact I Atlanta management I was just horrible I know if I’d worked at a place say like San Fransico or New York starbuck I’m sure for a fact that I they don’t need people Overstaff or understaff.but an even good amount of people over there most of the U.S mayor cities starbucks that’ll hire people full-time and not jerk your hours, trust me this is the last thing that I want is a job that’s cutting my hours and I don’t want that from this job. The starbucks I worked was right by a Country Club next by retirtees and young yuppie teens using their parents credit card or hard earn cash.
I wish my Co-Workers the best of luck and I hope that ATL Starbucks can get their act together and I hope they can learn that they have lost a good potiental worker they would have needed in their corp offices in Washington. For thoses that are seeing that post I don’t give a dam I know that Starbucks will not like that I’m posting but surely I don’t care because I’m purposely sharing how I felt with my nine month experience and I hope starbucks hire in new fresh management that help people rise up into success without the part time I was going through along with me and my co-workers. The rest of the staff ended up leaving back two months ago because of this Ican’t deal with it. To be fair I know starbuck as company in general is a very good as long you work hard to accomplish to earn your way with to a management position or good father ahead to make Starbucks as career. If I had worked somewhere like New York I know it’ll be a different, When I was over at Starbucks I remember asking a fellow New Yorker that use to work with me and I asked how is it working in Starbucks in New York? his response.”Grand Centeral is gets very very busy with everyone starting there morning and people working over at corporate america it says busy you’d have to be quick”. I like the dude was great to work with and never complain to about anything, only thing people I’d worked with said he was an ass but differ to believe a dam thing said, they themselves whre just being pain in the asses themselves. I thought “Deshawn” was great and didn’t care what everyone said about him he was a good motivation for the reason I stayed longer. also the Spotify benefits worked with me day and night with free music access all day as long you worked with Starbucks the discounts with my pastries and morning I liked having….also I loved my Frapps and teas every afternoons beside that I didn’t use it all that much because the hours were crap and didn’t get paid enough to spend a lot on it.
This is the end of my hitting point this blog, That’s how far I can take with my experience since I’m sure I don’t wanted to think anymore of my crazy times I had with them, ….I can say it was joy ride and one memorabla item I took was a Starbucks cap I’ll be using most of my activities on yard work and walking.
