First of all, it’s bad to steal. Don’t do it. Ever.
Second of all, if you’re going to fill out a Starbucks application online and end up working for them, why in the world would you want to steal anything from your customers?
In this video, a client drives up to the Starbucks drive thru window and confronts a young Starbucks employee about committing credit card fraud by copying her credit card info and using it to purchase items at a store later that day.
The customer goes back the next day to confront her and she readily admits to stealing the info and pleads for the customer to not press charges.
When you are blessed to be working for a great company, make the most of it. Don’t do ANYTHING to jeopardize your character or the company that pays you.
Also, for employees, Starbucks has great job benefits, not to mention the tips that you make.
What do you think? Should the woman press charges against this young Starbucks employee or should she give her a break? After all, we were all young once and we’ve all done things that we’ve regretted.
Pressing charges may set her a downhill spiral that could take years to recover from, if she ever recovers that is.
Another way would be to go with her to her parents and have her admit to her parents what she did, how wrong it was, and that she’ll never do it again. Going to the police together to admit the wrongdoing, but not press charges could be a big enough slap on the hand to make her never do such things again.
