Working at Starbucks

To Be A Partner

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.

Connect To Something Bigger

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) receive a wide range of perks, benefits and assistance. Your Special Blend might include bonuses, retirement savings matching and discounted stock purchase options. We offer adoption assistance and health coverage for you and your dependents, including domestic partners.

Our tuition reimbursement program is designed to provide financial support as you advance your professional development. This program will help reduce out-of-pocket expenses, inclusive of textbooks and tuition regardless of where you are in your career or academic journey.

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 discounts and one free pound of coffee, box of K-Cup® Packs or tea a week.

Partner Appreciation Day

A uniquely Canadian tradition, Partner Appreciation Day is a celebration in recognition of the amazing partners (employees) we have from coast to coast—in our stores and in our support centres.

The moments of connection our partners create every day in our communities, with our customers and with each other are what makes Starbucks Canada so special. Partner Appreciation Day serves as a milestone to thank each other in fun and unique ways for the daily contributions of each and every partner.

Diversity and Inclusion

At Starbucks, we strive to create a culture that values and respects diversity and inclusion. Our goal is to build a diverse workforce, increase competencies, shape a culture of inclusion and develop a diverse network of suppliers. Our welcoming work environment encourages partners to engage with one another and make Starbucks a place they look forward to working each day.
