I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Starbucks.
Met two district managers at a Starbucks and felt at ease and actually was a really great experience. They both asked me situational questions. I.e. Describe a time when you had to say no to something, and what was the outcome.

I applied in-person – interviewed at Starbucks.
Starbucks uses Time Limites Assignments. Very prolonged interview of 6 months where you are placed in a role prior to a promotion. This is the standard way people get promoted to a new role. The part of this that I did not like was you did the job for an extended period without being paid for the level you were working at.

Recruiter for the area you live in (in my case Los Angeles) sent these 2 links via e-mail:
-Phone interview scheduling calendar (Schedule date and time you're available)
-Virtual Job Tryout (1 hour long, have calculator if needed (basic math) for P&L statement
I had 2 phone interviews the first wanted to know:
-About you, any accomplishments, Why you want to work at Starbucks and what you know about the company
Second interview: (have questions ready! He asked me twice if I had any questions for him)
1.) Give a specific example of a customer confrontation. What did you do to handle the situation, and what was the end result.
2.) Tell me about a time you had a partner or team member that had a performance issue. What was the situation and what did you achieve?
- Tell me about a financial accomplishment, be specific, and what strategic steps did you take to achieve this goal. Answer Question

Can be lengthy. It started with the online application and if they are interested you will be asked to complete a virtual job tryout. If you pass that you move onto a phone interview. The next step is an in person interview with 2 dm's.
Might be a little room but not much. They are really competitive and realistic. They will probably ask you expectations in phone and in person interview. They will tell you then if that is in their range.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Starbucks in January 2015.
I applied online through there website and the following week the recruiter emailed me to set up a phone interview. After the phone interview, she sent me another E-mail with dates to meet with 2 district managers. When I got to the interview site, one manager was asking questions and the other manager was taking notes.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Starbucks in December 2014.
Very smoothly. Phone interviews and a in-person interview. Once the initial call took place everything moved at a fairly quick pace. The recruiter was very friendly. In-person interview took place at a random Starbucks and you get a free drink. The managers seemed casual and didnt make you feel uncomfortable.
- No really big surprise questions. Mainly asked about your previous experiences and how you reacted to situations. Answer Question
