Barista Interview

Barista
Charlottesville, VA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Starbucks in September 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online, and was immediately (20 minutes) called by the assistant manager of the store. We scheduled an individual, in person interview. She was very friendly during the interview, although I'm sure this is an individual thing. After that interview she asked me to come in for a second interview with the store manager. We arranged that, and after the second interview I was offered the job. The questions were mostly about my prior experience in work environments and my attitude and ability to learn new things. It was very casual and laid back.
