    Barista Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Biggby (Midland, MI) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I came in and one of the managers and a shift leader interviewed me. They read from a sheet of prepared questions that Biggby had for each franchise. They were fairly easy questions and the manager skipped over many of them. They always hire you on the spot so if you don't get asked to take the job then you probably won't get it.

    Negotiation

    They hired me on the spot so there was no negotiation phase.

    Barista Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Biggby (Detroit, MI) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very easy. My manager asked very simple, open ended questions. Barista work is not rocket science. They assume you don't know how the processes and recipes (I've only had Biggby once prior to interviewing there). The important thing to keep in mind is knowing how to work under pressure and memorizing recipes (makes the drink-making process infinitely easier if you remember it rather than referring to the cheat sheet all the time!).

    Interview

    Submitted an application online and then called the store to follow up with a manager and introduce myself. A couple of weeks later, I received a call to come in for an interview. The interview was one-on-one with the manager. Questions were pretty standard (What is your biggest asset/weakness? Why would you like to work here? Do you have transportation to the store? Do you have any planned vacations in the near future?) 2-3 days after the interview, I got a call saying I got the job and that training would start a week later.
