Im 18 years old and work at Starbucks, I want to quit and work somewhere else, any suggestions?

I have been at starbucks for a year and about 6 months now and im thinking about moving to another job. I also might be promoted to shift lead pretty soon but dont know if i want to be promoted and then be stuck there for another year. Im majoring in business and marketing, and i would like to have a job that i could use my selling skills etc.

Sun & Ski Sports gives you alot of selling skills. Smoothie King is also a great place to get a job, but not necessarily using the 'selling skills' you want.

browse around for other jobs while your still working there, and if no one calls you withen the next 2 weeks or so, then just quit. its up to you, but if your job pays good, and the employers are really nice, then you've got it made...and also, you might need the money if your 18 and out on you own.

I think you should stay there. Sell the products that are there! Plus... Think about it... You are not going to be at that job forever. Once you graduate you are going to move on to bigger and better things, but wouldn't it look awesome on a resume for you to have a few jobs that you worked at for a considerable amount... More

well in my opinion, I think you should stick it out for now, a promotion means more money. you get plenty of people skills working at a place like that, and you will make contacts via your customers, think about where all of your customers work? do you take the time to get to know them? and what is the job market like...

I think you should try Wall-Mart or K-mart that kind of organization. It can provide you an ample scope for advancement much better than a big coffee shop. Your degree is more suitable to join such an oganization.
