Starbucks Corporation Maternity Leave Comments
  • "Management was pretty woman-heavy and woman-friendly, but with little maternity leave options for part-time, having a baby essentially meant quitting." - Lady Eeeeeee
  • "Technically speaking, Starbucks doesn't offer maternity leave. However, they do offer short-term disability. You get a 66% pay during 6 weeks after birth of your child, which equals about 50% of regular pay after taxes and insurance. There are a lot of women at Starbucks, but upper level management is predominately male. As a women employee, I feel very supported and see a lot of opportunities. As a mother at Starbucks, I do not feel supported. Family doesn't seem to be at the forefront of Starbucks executive team." - Lady motherof1
  • "I think maternity leave could definitely be improved - you get 66% of your pay for 6 weeks, and after that it's unpaid or your return you to work." - Jshugs711
  • "This has changed since I took a maternity leave. I believe it is now 12 paid weeks." - Leader799590
  • "Effective October 1, 2017, partners (Starbucks baristas) who give birth are entitled to six weeks of leave paid at 100% of their annual pay, an increase from the prior benefit of 67% of average pay over that time period. To be eligible for Starbucks’ benefits, the employee must work a minimum of 20 hours per week. Starbucks also boosted the benefits it offers for non-store partners (district managers, field partners, employees at the headquarters), which under the new policy gives those new moms who give birth eligibility to receive a full 18 weeks of paid parental leave." - Anonymous
  • "Effective Oct 1, 2017 Non-birth parents will also get 12 weeks of paid leave if they work in corporate." - Anonymous
  • "Part-time jobs were offered in the past." - Anonymous
