Starbucks Military Commitment
We believe Veterans & Military Spouses make our company better & our communities stronger. In 2013, we committed to hiring 10,000 Veterans and Military Spouses by 2018. We reached that goal two years ahead of schedule. In 2018, we increased our commitment to hiring 25,000 Veterans and Military Spouses by 2025. We exceeded that goal and hired 25,000 Veterans and Military Spouses six years ahead of schedule. And we’re not stopping there. Moving forward, we aspire to hire 5,000 Veterans and Military Spouses annually.
Our commitment extends beyond hiring. We’re offering expanded benefits, including education opportunities. We have also opened over 60 Starbucks Military Family Stores across the U.S., and plan to dedicate 70 more by 2022. These are places where veterans and military families can work, connect and find transition guidance and information.
Through our partnerships, our goal is to be the leading corporate advocate and voice for transitioning veterans, military spouses and military families.
- Career Opportunities
The leadership skills and work ethic of veterans and their spouses are invaluable to the success of our business and exactly what we look for in new partners (employees). We encourage you to explore career opportunities with us, which include unique benefits like our Starbucks College Achievement Plan. For those in the National Guard or Reserves, Starbucks offers up to 80 hours of pay each year when service obligations take you away from work.
- Connect with Us
The Starbucks Armed Forces Network (AFN) on Facebook is open to all partners (employees) and advocates who want to support our military partners and their families. AFN’s mission is to help veterans transition to civilian employment and give all partners the opportunity to strengthen connections, while fostering a culture that supports and honors our military partners and their families.
