Being a Starbucks partner means having the opportunity to be something more than an employee (#tobeapartner). Gigantic possibilities lie ahead—to grow as a person, in your career, and in your community. To live the Starbucks mission and to be a leader. It’s the opportunity to become your personal best. To be connected to something bigger. To be meaningful to the world. And to be recognized for all of it. It’s all here for you.
Connecting with each other, with our customers and the communities we are a part of fosters a deep sense of purpose at Starbucks. We believe we can all become a part of something bigger and inspire positive change in the world around us. That’s why we go out to do community service as a team throughout the year (#extrashotofgood), partnering up with organizations to revitalize and enhance the neighborhoods we serve.
At Starbucks, our Total Pay package is called “Your Special Blend.” It’s a benefits package that is tailored to the needs of our partners. And it’s designed just for you.
Benefits-eligible partners (those working 20 or more hours a week) can get a broad range of perks, benefits, and assistance. Your Special Blend might include bonuses, 401(k) matching and discounted stock purchase options. We offer adoption assistance and health coverage for you and your dependents, including domestic partners.
Starbucks College Achievement Plan is an opportunity for all benefits-eligible U.S. partners (all brands) to complete a bachelor’s degree with full-tuition coverage for every year of college through Arizona State University’s top-ranked degree programs, delivered online. Also, to show our gratitude for our partners who are military service members and veterans, they may extend an additional SCAP benefit to their spouse or child. Learn more.
Partners also appreciate our recognition programs, career sabbaticals, and other time-off programs. Plus, you can take advantage of partner perks such as 30% in-store and online discounts, one free pound of coffee, a box of K-Cup® Packs or tea a week.
At Starbucks, we strive to create a culture that values and respects diversity and inclusion.
