Very Easy Interview
Barista - Starbucks Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Starbucks in January 2010.
Interview Details – The interview was face to face in store. The manager asked me basic customer service question and placed within hypothetical situations where I was asked what I would do in a certain scenario. The whole process took somewhere around 30 minutes to an hour. Once I was hired, I was giving a tour of the shop.
Interview Question – Mostly situation related or experience related questions. Answer Question
Shift Supervisor Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Starbucks in February 2013.
Interview Details – If you're looking for a job at Starbucks, here's how to go about getting one.
1. On a Monday, around mid-day, call nearby Starbucks locations, speak to the manager, and find out if they are ring. If you apply for a store that isn't hiring, your application still gets locked to that store for about a month. Bonus points: visit in person instead of calling and chat with the manager about anything; try to learn something about the manager before you leave.
2. Apply online.
3. Follow up with a phone call the following Monday if you haven't heard anything yet.
There's usually a phone prescreening, then an interview, then job offer pending a background check, and once that clears, then you're all good to start.
Interview Question – All of the questions are along the lines of "tell me about a time when you..." View Answer
Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate, but I wish I had tried.
Store Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Starbucks in July 2010.
Interview Details – Typically begins with an hour long phone interview, followed by a 1-2 hour first interview with prospecting DM, then a second 1-2 hour interview with another DM for approval. The whole process can take up to 4 weeks
Interview Question – typical interview questions, nothing worth noting Answer Question
Negotiation Details – The offer was final, no room for negotiation
Assistant Store Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Starbucks in January 2014.
Interview Details – Lots of build up to be blown off a few times. Starbucks has a bunch of scripted questions for you. Odds are your manager will give the list to you ahead of time. You meet with various store managers and a couple district managers. Best case scenario: flip the script, ask them questions about the role.
Interview Question – None, typical crap. Do you understand a profit and loss schedule? lame stuff Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation. You take it or you're totally screwing yourself over
Barista - Starbucks Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Starbucks in June 2012.
Interview Details – It was simple and direct. I had two store managers interviewing at the same time. It felt like a conversation of people getting to know one another.
Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Answer Question
Barista - Starbucks Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Starbucks.
Interview Details – I had a total of 3 interviews for a job in a new starbucks opening in my area. I had the first interview with the manager of a different starbucks nearby. The second interview was held with a shift manager at a local store. I was frustrated after the first two interviews because it took a week for the manager to call me back...I was getting a little impatient. Finally, that manger called me back to have a conversation with the manager of the new store opening up. We had a conversation and he hired my on the spot. I have to say I was a little discouraged after the second interview because it took them a little while to get back to me. My advice is to not over think it. Sometimes, it takes them a while to get back because there can be a ton of applicants all at once. If you felt you did well on your initial interview(s)...you'll probably also get the job! Good luck!
Interview Question – How would you act in a situation when you had a lot of customers at once? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation on pay.

Interview takes about an hour
Interview Question – Are you willing to clean. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – They offer you the position and tell you the wage and give you a start date
Regional Recruiter Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 5 months - interviewed at Starbucks in January 2009.
Interview Details – Candidates should expect the same "green apron" experience for interviews that they receive as customers in the coffee shops
Interview Question – All questions will be behavioral based so be prepared to site specific examples Answer Question
Very Easy Interview
Starbucks Store Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Starbucks in June 2010.
Interview Details – I was interviewed four times -- once at an open call; once over the phone; once with a store manager; once with a regional manager. I have never not gotten a job I applied for, but I did not get this one ... so take my review with a grain of salt. I believe that the regional manager felt threatened by me because of my education level, although I consider myself very down-to-earth. However, she was younger than I am and I think more inexperienced.
Interview Question – None. the usual retail questions. Answer Question
