Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee

Application Details

I interviewed online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Starbucks.

Interview Details

Applied on-line.
Was contacted a month later for an interview.
Had phone interview with the recruiter. Asked about resume and past experience. Was also told more about the position, which did NOT match the description I applied to. Was told the next step was an interview with the hiring manager, but that he was traveling so not sure when we could speak.

    The process took 3 days - interviewed at Starbucks in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application online and received an email from the recruiter the very next morning. We set up a time for a phone interview 2 days later. We talked for about an hour then she set up a time for me to meet the DM the next day. I don't think it would have been a great fit but the recruiter was absolutely lovely to deal with and the DM was very nice as well. The questions were the basic behavioral type interview questions. The recruiter called me a couple days after the interview to let me know that they decided to go with another candidate and her message was by far the nicest of its kind I could ever imagine receiving. All in all a pleasant experience.

    The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Starbucks in March 2008.

    Interview Details

    First initial contact was a short phone interview with a HR person. The process was brief and consisted of 5 to 7 questions that questioned your honesty and integrity. Second was a 1:1 with an HR manager. That was much more detailed. It was basically the STAR method.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Starbucks in September 2008.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, was briefly interviewed on the phone and then scheduled a panel interview for a week later. The interview was friendly a little bit daunting walking into a room full off managers/district managers/hr personelle, but it was professional and the questions were typical. I was applying for a management position and was offered an assistant management position, with the opportunity for growth. I accepted the offer and worked for SB for 1.5 years no promotion but was moved to a closer than I currently worked at by request.

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at Starbucks in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    I applied on line. Two days later, I received a phone call to schedule a phone interview. Questioning was confusing, not quite sure what the interviewer was asking. When giving answers, they dont seem to take into consideration the industry you had been in previously. Didnt seem to consider qualifications, seemed to be based on whether you had a good rapor....dont know what they were looking for, yet it seems as though they need a better hiring process
