What have you done only the white Girls were suppose to know this
Do you realize how much we, the people that have to make these drinks, hate everyone single one of you who orders these??!!?!?!? Imagine if you will you have two blenders, twenty drinks (each one specially made) and multiple people yelling at you for not moving fast enough, screaming their drink isn’t made to their standard and how no matter what you do, everyone is unhappy and you end up with milk in your shoes. This is why we despise people who think this secret Starbucks menu was a good idea
While I understand that Starbucks can be a pretty stressful job and when it’s crowded, it sucks hardcore, I don’t think making customers feel bad that they order things that you guys can make for them is okay.
Yeah don’t be a douche starbucks worker person. You signed up for that job. Just quit if it’s so bad
So because we were trained how to make drinks on our menu it’s okay for people to start having us make things that we weren’t trained on, that aren’t on our menu? okay. THAT is the problem. that we’ve made it clear we don’t even know what these drinks are, that we don’t even have some of these ingredients and that it ruins our repeatable drink routine and then WE get complained to that it’s taking too long to make things, but people shrug it off and continue to order drinks that we don’t have the recipe to. NOT that we don’t like people wanting to order customized drinks. and without even a “sorry this is going to hold up the line” but we will get a “um excuse what’s taking so freaking loong” but no one cares. oh well.
sure i can quit, but I’ve been there for 2 years, before this stupid fucking article was put online, and absolutely hate the idea of having to start over new somewhere. especially when I’ve come to know all my coworkers as friends now and i have difficulty adjusting to new places. there are plenty of people working places they can’t stand but quitting is not the solution when the employees and business weren’t the problem.
i’ve never been treated so cruelly by customers at a job before, how is anyone surprised that starbucks employees are starting to complain were not god damn machines we’re people. gosh just got suck it up though!
I feel dumber after reading that. Your job is not hard. You don’t even scratch the surface of “stressful”.
It’s not hard to remember a few ingredients in addition to the thing you’ve been trained to make. If it is, there is this magical thing called paper. Write it down. Takes 3 more seconds. Waiters at restaurants keep track of how things are done that way.
LOOOOL as a partner and reading what that person wrote… Oh god. Shut your bitchin’. 9/10 of the people ordering off the secret menu are high schoolers/kids. If you’re getting irritated by the secret menu, fuck it up on purpose. It’s not like they really know exactly what it tastes like.
Spit in the drinks of all of these people, baristas.
Holy shit, is it that fucking difficult to make paying customers a drink that might not be on the fucking menu?!
Yes, shut the fuck up you spoiled fucking idiots who have probably never worked a day in your life hooooly shit this post is filled with so much stupidity
i sense a lot of worker-hostility in this comment chain
dude i get stressed just LOOKING at the starbucks workers on my college campus good lord everyone in this post has gotta be like 15
I’m actually 22 and a partner. And my argument was pretty much what a previous commenter said. We are not trained on how to make these ‘secret menu’ drinks. We will never be trained on how to make them. It is not part of our job description.
Yes, it IS frustrating to make these from time to time. ESPECIALLY when you get a line wrapping around your store, and out to the street (yes, this happens a lot during the summer) of little teenage girls and boys who want to customize their drink from this ‘secret menu’.
For the most part, we don’t mind making them. We will laugh at you, because the whole idea is really fucking stupid. But we will make them to the best of our ability.
HOWEVER, if we do NOT know the recipe off the top of our heads, you had better come prepared. We will not always have the syrup that you want, (for instance: Almond, blackberry, etc). Specific syrups, that are seasonal, are specific and limited to certain regions. (Sunbelt states/Midwest/West Coast, etc.) You need to know exactly what is in the drink. Don’t just say, “Cadbury Egg Creme Frappuccino”. We need to know the ingredients. Because we aren’t/will not/never will be, trained on the recipes, it is up to YOU to come prepared knowing exactly how many pumps of syrup, scoops of inclusions, pumps of base, go into your large ass caloric Frappuccino. If we happen to not know off the top of our heads, do not get upset. It is not our place to know these things.
All that being said, Starbucks Coffee Company does not, has not, will not, endorse a “Secret Menu” of any sort. It is 100% fan-created.
