    Current Employee - Barista in Grand Rapids, MI

    I have been working at Biggby part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The customers are fantastic, especially regulars. We have a great set of co-workers too, at both Biggby's I have worked at.

    Cons

    The pay is very low for any rank. Shift leads and managerial positions do not make much more than baristas. A barista makes minimum wage.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Biggby.

    Interview Details

    Submitted an application online and then called the store to follow up with a manager and introduce myself. A couple of weeks later, I received a call to come in for an interview. The interview was one-on-one with the manager. Questions were pretty standard (What is your biggest asset/weakness? Why would you like to work here? Do you have transportation to the store? Do you have any planned vacations in the near future?) 2-3 days after the interview, I got a call saying I got the job and that training would start a week later.
