Interview Details

First it was a phone interview, pretty basic and simple. Then i had a interview with two area managers inside a StarBucks. Very lad back they where very friendly and put me at ease. They give you a free drink. You also do a coffee tasting. I didnt know much about coffee at the time and I let them know that and they started teaching me right away. So you do learn a little in the interview.

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Starbucks.

    Interview Details

    one interview with the regional director and one phone interview with the Regional Vice President; very comfortable process. I was an internal candidate so my District Manager at the time helped prep me quite well. For external candidates, it can be difficult as there is typically a panel interview via phone first.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Starbucks in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    First interview with recruiter was very generic, 2nd interview with recruiter was behavior based questions, asking to give examples of coaching and follow up. At this point, there wasn't a position open, but simply interviewing in case an opportunity opened up.

    The follow up was my initiative; both email and voice mail. After applying on-line and not hearing anything, I'd found the recruiter and sent an email with my resume attached in order to get an interview. Same thing after both interviews, I'd needed to follow up.

    Interview Questions
    • After reviewing an example of a less than positve customer experience and how I'd resolved the issue and coached the team, the recruiter asked ..... what did you do? It was as if they hadn't been listening.   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Starbucks.

    Interview Details

    extraordinary and amazing from the very first encounter!!!! My recruiter was patient and very thorough, and I felt the warmth and passion of each individual that I interviewed with.... there were a few! And, that is awesome, too! Starbucks values its existing teams so much that they take the time to screen and scrutinize each candidate. I loved every bit of my onboarding experience!!!

    Interview Questions
    • I think that most were standard. The questions are behavioral, and I liked that part because it forces candidates to really pull from their experiences versus hypotheticals.   Answer Question

    Submit your resume, then you will be asked to take an online assessment, then you will meet with a panel of people. I met with Regional director and the Human Resource manager. The environment was friendly. The questions they ask are behavioral and experiential. Everyone was very friendly. The interview lasted more than one hour. Approximately 15 people interviewed for the position. I heard back after one week. The HR person walked me through what the next steps would be. The RD made the offer.
