This is a really helpful post to me. Just last week i was at work and got scouted by a Starbucks manager, i'm so excited! I start tomorrow! Anyone know any details about this "transfer" available after working for Starbucks three months????

Hey Needanap2:

First thanks so much for visiting from Mom Advice. I've already thanked Amy for the mention. (I love her blog!)

And Needanap2: Thanks for the inside report about your husband's work experience at Starbucks. That's great information.

Please stop by again. You have added a lot to the discussion.
Take care!
Sharon

I came over from Mom Advice (http://www.momadvice.com/blog/2007/11/amys-notebook-112807.htm). My husband did work at Starbucks. Not only do you get a pound of coffee a week (or 2 half pounds or a package of tea), you get most drinks free while working (or to go when you get off a shift). You also get a discount when you're not working. You're also on the "inside" on store markdowns. You can definitely score a leftover paper! I would score the healthplan at 2.5 out of 4 stars, but the amount to pay per pay period is wonderful! Yes, you can have health, vision, and dental. Just like any health insurance these days, you have to keep up with the explanation of benefits and make sure they're paying correctly! :)

Debby:

Public school systems typically have great benefits: Health and pension plans.

My parents worked for the Philadelphia School system.

I understand why someone would pay to be included in a school board health plan. Wow!

Thanks for your comment. Take Care!

I worked for the school board and there were ladies there that worked 40 hours a week just so that they can get health insurance for their family. Some even had to write the school board a check each pay period. What a joke!

Long Beach Babe:

I hope your meeting goes well tomorrow.

Thanks so much for your comment. I totally relate to the career change moments.

Even though I have a full plate, I'm really tempted to also apply. I still have the application...
Take care and Thanks so much for stopping by!

Please drop me an email: sharonhr@bellsouth.net to let me know how the job situation is going.

I loved this post! I've been facing some work troubles as of late, and actually applied to Starbucks online a few weeks ago when I was going through one of my "career change" moments. They haven't called me though. Depending on what happens at a meeting tommorrow to determine where we are supposed to land at my current employer, maybe it would be worth walking in there in person and applying. There's one located in the downstairs of my current office building in fact........

Hi G:

Thanks so much for the information and the comment.

You are so right. And it's not just the AARP crowd.

I have several upper middle class 20-something or early 30s friends who do not have healthcare.


One mother I know faces difficult choices: car payment, house payment and food vs. insurance for her family.

I once met a 20-something techie who worked at a company, but could not afford to pay his portion of the health care tab, so he opted out of the plan in order to take care of other bills.

Thanks so much for your feedback! It means a lot.

2007-11-26T14:18:00.000-05:00

The Health Care Crisis in America has spawned articles such as this one which remarks on the ten reasons why we would work at Starbuck's; the most important reason being the great health care for only working there 20 hours a week. This is great information to know because this is what society has been reduced to. The programs we have implemented for the elderly are just not there for us when we need them. That is why we must take a stance now before it is too late. We have to be pro-active about entering our senior years before we are too enabled to do so. One way I found to do this is to go to the AARP site: http://www.thisissoridiculous.com I found this site to be very helpful in disseminating valuable information about health care. It has a video and email ID’s to use in order to address the growing problem. Most importantly, there is a petition there we should all sign in order to make our voices heard. I know because I’m working to support this with AARP.

Hey Sage Rave:

Thanks so much for the comment!

And ooooh noooo. I don't plan to retire. I like working too much and I don't have nearly enough money saved.

But I would like to have more money saved so that I can be pickier about the work I accept.

Also I would like to do more literary writing, which pays Nada.
So I'll need a nest egg to finance my literary life fantasies.

Starbucks sounds really good to me also and I'm 100 percent serious.

Thanks so much for your comment and good luck with working with the special needs students.

Take Care!

You are actually going to retire?

Even though I just got my Social Security statement I am not counting on ever being "employment free", and I have actually been putting money aside. I think the best I ca hope for is working from home most of the time.

Starbucks sounds interesting though. Right now I work with special needs students on a part time basis while working toward freelance writing. Starbucks sounds alot safre!
