    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Starbucks (Boulder, CO).

    Interview

    It was great, they ask you about you and what is your proudest moment. Then they proceed to switch interviewers with a new line of questions. Like What other jobs have you had and what have you gain from them? Do you see on a long term with starbucks?

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Starbucks (Atlanta, GA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Behavioral questions, training modules, one on one training and computer tests. They acquired knowledge of my working style through being a barista for a couple of months. They then asked me to apply to be a shift manager. It's a little more challenging to become a shift supervisor without the experience of being barista but not at all impossible.

    Interview

    Pretty basic, was myself and answered questions honestly. Mainly questions about what you are doing, availability and what you do for work. They ask questions about costumer service and general questions to make sure you can hold a normal conversation. Both of my managers I interviewed with were amazing people.

    Interview

    Apply online, get locked in by a manager. Sit down interview with the manager. Series of questions about your experience and what kind of job environment you are looking for. Pretty simple process, you could be handed a job by a manager being desperate or be turned down for the job based on how much the manager thinks you are qualified.

    Interview

    The manager read straight from a script and asked in depth questions that seemed more oriented towards management than Shift Supervisor. The interview was very rigid and lacked any manager personality included.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Starbucks (South Florida, FL) in September 2014.

    Interview

    It was a surprise after finally hearing from the company after a month to come into for an interview. As for the interview process itself, from what i figure it was pretty routine. The manager told me their backstory on how they got into the company and followed a printed questionnaire.

    Interview Questions
