StarbuckSpread.jpgAlex Frankel 93 describes Starbucks as an intense, protocol-driven place, focused on quotidian customer experience, with impressive vestiges of coffee consciousness mixed with a dollop of corporate propaganda (Confessions of Starbucks Barista, September/October). His experience stressed him out, and he decided that working at Starbucks wasnt right for him, but the first ninety-nine-one-hundreths of the article still doesnt justify the name-calling in the last paragraph. Starbucks may be a faux version of his nave expectations for it, but from his description it seems like an authentic version of a real-world, scaled-up business that still makes buying coffee, sweet drinks, and snacks as convenient and pleasurable as can be expected for its customers, and makes working there more interesting and involving than I had ever imagined.
