I applied in-person and interviewed at Starbucks.
Interview Details – The hiring and interview process was simple and unintimidating. However, it seems more effective to walk into a Starbucks, and ask to speak with a shift supervisor or manager, and express your interest and qualifications than it does to quietly submit an application. The application review process was not a priority, especially as the location only hired one new barista every several months.
Negotiation Details – I interviewed with the company twice. When I originally took the position, and when I returned to work for the company after a 2-year hiatus for school. The first interview was great and the offer was fair. I was not satisfied that I was offered MUCH lower pay when I returned to work for the company than the pay I had reached 2 years prior.

Interviewed at Starbucks
Interview Details – I applied online originally for a Barista position. There was also a Shift Supervisor position available so I applied for both, due to having past restaurant management experience. Once I sent my application, I received a phone call the very next day. They were doing a lot of interviews due to a new store opening within a month so they were hiring a lot of candidates at one time. I was scheduled with an interview two days later with store managers from different stores. The interview was very behavioral-based questions. "Tell me about a time..." sort of questions. Since I was applying for the shift supervisor position, a lot of questions were focusing more on leadership. Be prepared with answers about how you handle SPECIFIC situations. The interviewers are wanting a specific situation, the problem, how you handled it, and how it effected your future behavior. They really thrive on customer service and will ask you questions about this. It will help to know about the company, their mission statement, and why exactly you want to work for Starbucks. After the interview, the two interviewers were pleased with my answers and said they were going to recommend me for hire. A background check was conducted and I received a call within a week to start work.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you received unsolicited feedback from a superior. What was the feedback and how did you handle it? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I was given an offer from the District Manager after a second interview with him. I was doing an interview for a possible Assistant Store Manager position. Since I had 4 years of management experience, I received a higher than average hourly base pay, which I accepted. I'm not sure if this is standard with every Starbucks, or just based on the budget and the District Managers/ Store Managers of specific stores.
