HowsThatJob? : Starbucks rates in bottom 5

Aside

Before people start pegging me as someone who only sees the positive in Starbucks as of late, it is worth mentioning that a new site, Hows That Job?, has Starbucks listed in the Bottom 5 companies. Now, the site only has 45 reviews right now (in total – with only one for Starbucks) – but it is an opposite point of view. This reviewer also qualifies the rating, saying that it was the customers that made it terrible.

“Real Life” Starbucks

Aside

Earlier this week I reviewed a book on Starbucks. Most of these books you get the “rosy view” of the world. I found this article today and was riveted by the comment thread that includes contributions by many Starbucks employees. Looks like Starbucks is, in many respects, like any other company. The thread is absolutely fascinating and worth spending the time to read every entry.
