Talking My New Job

After networking and being patient for almost three years, I finally got a job at Starbucks. I have wanted the chance to get into this company for so long and to see if it will be a good fit for me for the long-term. Right now I will be a Barista (coffee making partner) but in time I really hope to get a store of my own.

Today I started my training. There will be lots of tasting of coffee and pastry over the next three weeks. I will have to count those calories and workout extra hard. I'm determine to not let this new job ruin my weight loss like the convenience store did.

I just wanted to share my wonderful news!

I love coffee!!!

Congratulations, Pita! I'm not a coffee drinker but I go into Starbucks sometimes with a friend and it's a cool place. I would have trouble with those treats in the case; they all look so yummy. Is tasting them part of your training? I think that's what you're saying. If so, yikes--those things look GOOD to me.

Best of luck in your new career. Wouldn't it be cool to own your own franchise!??

One of my dearest, closest friends worked for Starbucks in Minn. where she did get her own store. She moved back to Colorado and started working for her in-laws. She missed her old job so much she went back to Starbucks in a hearbeat- even at a lower position until the new store opened and they could move her up. Must be a wonderful employer to work for!! Good for you sweetie!!

Thank you Chickie's!

Windchime, I have to taste everything in the store. It will be important to understand the different taste of the coffees and teas and to know what pastries and nuts pair with them. It's all part of that famous, money making scheme called suggestive selling.

TaraLee, my manager is on her second time with Bux as well. She tried to move to another job and hated it so much she went back to Starbucks. The woman is so passionate about the company it's infectious.

I'm very excited and hopeful that I've found my niche.
