Very Easy Interview
I applied in-person and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Starbucks in February 2010.
Interview Details – There was a brief phone interview before the actual in-store interview. The questions were very basic and not difficult to answer at all. The individual performing the interview was the store manager and was very informative about his/her expectations regarding performance. Additionally, there was a final interview with the district manager about my own personal expectations.
Interview Question – Would you give someone you knew free coffee? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Starbucks in March 2013.
Interview Details – I was asked to do two interviews - my first initial interview included talking about my interest in the company, as well as my experiences with Starbucks' ethical bean growth and farming; I expressed that I was drawn to Starbucks because it is known to be one of the most LGBT-friendly companies out there. The manager (at the time) acknowledged this, then let me know that I would have to speak to the manager of another store for my secondary interview. That interview went smoothly, and was more focused on availability and personal attributes. The interviews are supposed to feel like casual conversation over a cup of espresso/coffee, which both managers emulated perfectly. I did not feel nervous/affronted by them at all.

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Starbucks in December 2013.
Interview Details – Applied for barista position and received a call back that same week. Asked me a few information questions over the phone (assistant store manager) like availability, a little about myself, and why starbucks. After that i was setup on my first interview which was with the assistant store manager, you get a free coffee :-). They use the star model to do their interviews so she basically went question by question down the sheet, very easy interview, why do you want to work for us, when did you have conflict with another employee and how did you solve it, tell me about a time you were given a project and how did you complete it, etc. She called my back that same day to schedule a 2nd interview with the store manager. That one was a 1 on 1 no paper. She wanted to again know why I wanted to join the company, what my future plans were, and a little about my background. I told her there was a good chance I could be moving soon so i might not be with the company long, but its wasnt set in stone. About 2 weeks later (2 weeks because I wasn't available to start until 3 weeks) she called me to set up a schedule, but unfortunately i decided to move much earlier than I anticipated I would so I couldn't accept the job offer .
Interview Question – For me it was when did I have a conflict with an employee that was unresolved and how did I handle it. But I said I couldnt recall a time, and it didn't hurt my interview. Answer Question
