    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Starbucks.

    Interview Details

    I had a very easy telephone interview with a recruiter. This was followed by a an in-person interview with two district managers who were both new to their roles. I was surprised by some of the questions, which seemed random and not related to the position I was being considered for. Despite this, I was offered the job the very next day.

    Interview Questions
    • One of the interviewers asked me: "There have been many changes at Starbucks over the years, and there are many challenges today for store managers." What challenges do you anticipate as a store manager? There were no examples of the changes or challenges given. He expected me to know what challenges face their managers.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Starbucks in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter made contact, first interview over phone. DM interview next in person, Regional interview next over the phone. The interview questions were very basic. I think the thing I liked the most about this company is that they genuinely want to get their impression of YOU. They're very kind and respectful and they will always be open to what you say-- whether good or bad. They appreciate honesty and candidness.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions are all situational. So be able to recall SPECIFIC times you experienced that instance.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    I only had one interview and it went pretty quick. The reason being is I developed within the company and moved up the ranks. Here's what it came down to: I knew the lingo, I knew the store that I worked at like the back of my hand, and I had awesome leadership to guide me in that direction
