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 in the Middle East and North Africa, operated under franchise by M. H. Alshaya Co. - one of the region’s leading retailers - we offer a range of pay and benefits to attract and support our partners.
