Responsibilities include making satisfactory drinks for customers, maintaining the work area clean at all times, and most importantly, create a friendly, comfortable environment for our customers. We aim to inspire and nurture the human spirit one community and one cup at a time. I have recently been involved in community service that Starbucks is affiliated with, including building homes for people in need, in the area of Chicago.
