Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Starbucks.
Interview Details – Submitted an application online and received a phone call within a week. Had a short conversation with the manager about why I wanted to work for Starbucks, about my availability, and scheduled an in-person interview. Interview consisted of standard employment questions about why you want to work there, your past work experience, and some specific situational questions such as: When was a time you saw a coworker doing something unethical and what did you do about it? When was a time you provided excellent customer service? When was a time when you exceeded customer expectations? I would recommend being prepared with some stories from your work experience. I received a call about 5 days after my interview with a job offer contingent on a background check which took 2 weeks to process. I believe Starbucks is looking for dependable, high-character people who can connect with their customers more than anything else, so make sure to convey that to your interviewer. Also I would recommend calling the stores you apply to introduce yourself to the manager and stand out from their pool of applicants.

Interviewed at Starbucks
Interview Details – I applies online to Starbucks and personally went in to a couple of the stores I applied to so that I could meet them and hand in a paper resume. The Barista's and shift was extremely nice and wished me luck. After a week they set up an interview and I went in for the interview. Typical questions asked however my interview started 30 minutes late due to the manager was in a previous meeting that went long. SHe was very apologetic about that and it went well from there. A second interview and a phone call about a week later and I was hired.
Interview Question – Most difficult question was the greatest weakness question. Although a typical question, I had not prepared for that and it can catch you by surprise. Answer Question

Interview Details – I applied online and got a call for an in person interview the following week. I met with the manager and the interview went great! We talked a lot, laughed, and she told me I was a great candidate. She was overseeing hiring for another location because they had no manager, so I was set up a second interview with the assistant manager from the other location. I went to the second interview, and didn't go as well as I expected. The lady asked me about 3 questions and was finished. I was positive and professional but she seemed uninterested. Wasn't offered the job or ever called back after she said I would hear from her in a week.
Interview Question – Basic questions. How would you prioritize multiple customers at once? Answer Question

Interview Details –
I filled out an online application weeks ago, when I knew I would be moving to the area. No response. I called a couple of stores in the area, and one very helpful barista told me which specific stores in the area were hiring. (Great info!) I called THOSE specific stores and everyone told me the same thing - fill out the online application. I filled out the online application AGAIN, making sure to select the hiring stores. About 4 days after not hearing anything, I walked into one of the stores and talked to the manager. I shook his hand and told him I applied. He was super friendly and said he'd take a look at my application. He called the next day and set up an interview!
The interview was harder than I expected; he asked a lot of situational questions that I had a difficult time answering. But all in all, it was pleasant. He offered me a job at the end of the interview.

Interview Details – I applied at 4 different Starbucks locations and filled out an online application that took about 30 minutes to complete. The next morning I got a call from a hiring manager of one of the locations and scheduled an interview the following day. I arrived 15 minutes early and let one of the baristas know that I had an interview scheduled. She asked if I would like a complimentary drink and I asked for a tall latte. I recommend taking the offer for the free coffee to physically show the manager that you are interested in coffee! I also recommend being as friendly and personable with the current baristas because they do talk to their manager about their first impressions. All three of the baristas introduced themselves to me and I talked with one for a few minutes as she was stalking one of the shelves. When the interview rolled around, I was greeted by the manager and the process lasted about 25 to 30 minutes. Most of the questions were behavioral (ie. Give me a situation when...) which can be very hard if you do not prepare beforehand. I was called two hours later but missed the call. I called back the next day and was offered the position.
