    Shift Lead Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Leandro, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Starbucks (San Leandro, CA).


    Three store managers and a District Manager interviewed me. They have a list of specific interview questions, but each manager approaches it in their own way.
    After the interview phase I began training and I had the opportunity to work at several stores. These each served as secondary interviews to see which store I would transfer to when I completed my training.

    Interview Questions

    • I wasn't expecting to have my personal life evaluated, but in a customer-oriented and community-involved corporation, it makes sense. The managers were experienced interviewers based on the quickness with which they interpreted my responses.   Answer Question


    The salary isn't negotiable at entry-level, but the company had many benefits to offer. The totality of a stock investment plan, 401(k), health plan, and the promise of a bonus and sabbatical is motivation for staying with the company.
    The negotiation itself was to the point, and I think they come into it knowing how impressed you'll be with the variety in their long list of benefits.
