February 1, 2018 |  Starbucks Baristas

The Starbucks in the Albertsons near the intersection of NE Redmond-Fall City Road and Sahalee Way is in desperate need of workers. They are very willing to work around a people’s schedule and have been a really nice group of people. The manager is moving to CA and another employee is entering the military so they are down to 2.5 workers. It’s a union job and does come with health insurance. Pay would be between $10.50-12.50 (depending on experience) and could be about 25 hours a week consistently. The job does require standing the whole time but there isn’t much heavy lifting beyond gallons of milk. You’ll get training on the job so they just want people who are prompt, courteous, and able to follow directions. Ideally, they’d like another 3 workers.

Job application is online (https://www.albertsons.com/career-location-finder-retail-positions/) but Amelia is the front-line manager and can be reached at 425-836-8112.
