    work at or work for

    I once worked at Starbucks...

    I once worked for Starbucks!

    Are both grammatically correct?

    Thanks!

  1. #2

    Re: work at or work for

    They are both correct. The difference in my mind is
    that in #1, I may not be necessarily employed by Starbucks.
    That is, I might be an employee of a contractor/sub-contractor
    and have been deployed at Starbucks, whereas in #2,
    I am employed by Starbucks.

    Let us wait for the experts.
