Structural Issues- by having a diverse staff, this means you have to deal with different cultures and adapt to them.

Communication issues- this will we make things interesting because in different cultures there is different ways of communicating, Starbucks will have to train the new employees to communicate the way the company does.

HRM issues- With this you can provide international employees hotlines to ask questions on their own time to answer their questions that they might not have thought of when they where on the job.

What do you think it is like to work at Starbucks? I think it would be a very positive work environment to work in. With the training you would receive would look good on your resume for future jobs.
