    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Starbucks (Trenton, NJ).

    Interview

    They only talked with me for about 10-15 minutes and it was out on the floor with customers. It seemed unprofessional and rushed. I had plenty of experience working at a coffee shop previously as a barista but Starbucks thought that was a negative. They want clean slates that they can mould at their '8 week training bootcamp'.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Starbucks (Parsippany, NJ) in November 2010.

    Interview

    I had one interview with two top level executives. They asked questions based on everyday experiences within the job and how I handled it and why or what or how it was executed.

    Interview Questions

    • One interviewee wanted to know how I handled a situation so I explained the scenario and she got mad that I didn't get the gossip of the situation. It was a partner (employee) situation, so it involved people she was familiar with and instead of focusing on how I made the resolve in a quick, quiet and professional manner, she wanted the guts of the story. I was disgusted with her.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They said this is the typical range for ASM's and bc I have a college degree, I requested more and they said ok.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Starbucks (Wayne, NJ) in April 2010.

    Interview

    my interview experience was interesting and it felt like it took forever, probably because i was nervous. it wasnt as bad as i thought it was going to be though. overall it was a pretty positive experience in the end i didnt get the job because my class schedule was too packed for them to be able to give me optimal hours.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Starbucks (Jersey City, NJ) in November 2009.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me based on a Resume she found floating around somewhere. Had me take an online assessment test which consisted of fairly obvious choices and some P&L problems....nothing too major. After the test, we scheduled a phone interview. Consisted of basic employment history questions. Also asked if I was interviewing with anyone else and who (very unprofessional). To my surprise, there were literally no behavioral questions like people mentioned. Interview lasted roughly 20 minutes, and got a call the next day saying they were going to pursue other candidates. I would be wary and ask the recruiter more questions upfront before the actual interview. The one I had was obviously not qualified, as a decision was made based on practically no career probing whatsoever. 12+ years of management experience, so I doubt I am under-qualified. Again, be very careful of the recruiter you speak to, it could cost you a job!
