My name is Zach and I work in the lesser known part of Starbucks. I am a Starbucks roasting plant/warehouse employee! Ask me anything!
I work in the Starbucks roasting plant and warehousing operations. We see a lot more than Baristas or other retail employees. Ask me anything you like.
DISCLAIMER: I will not be disclosing any trade secrets due to a non disclosure agreement I have signed with my company. Thanks.
Apparently it makes the coffee stronger. I'll have to ask the roasters when I go in Monday
Does your home always smell like coffee from your clothing absorbing it?
I actually don't work in the roasting part. I'm in distribution. But the whole warehouse smells of coffee.. At first it was nice, now I'm just sick of it..
What exactly do you do as your job?
I'm a picker.. Everything that goes into the Starbucks stores (and I mean everything) I pick and put into boxes. then we ship it to the stores when they order it.
What is your favorite drink? Do you get unlimited freebies?
Our break room is filled with ingredients to make Starbucks coffee.. Cold and hot. You gotta make it yourself. So yes
How do the pay and benefits compare to other picker/packer jobs?
13/hr + 1 week of paid time off & benefits after 90 days.. So I'd say about average
York PA plant?
Why does Starbucks insist on burning the beans?
