    Barista Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Phila, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Così (Phila, PA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    My interview was actually first conducted during a job fair they held in one of their main locations in the heart of the city. It went very well, the store manager that hired me was very nice and very personable. Only about a handful of people showed up and they all were hired and working in less than a week. Needless to say they needed people asap, after i was hired the store manager that hired me had to contact me to let me know that the district manager felt that they needed my experience in a busier location and though she had fought me, it was all about what's best for the company. So.. I had to sit in a second interview literally two days later where the manager instantly came of as lazy, careless and desperate to fill his store with associates. I literally started working 3 days afterwards.

    Interview Questions

    • Some of the things I was asked doing my first intial interview, were very basic; How'd you hear about us?, have you heard of us before?, do you have prior customer service and cashier experience?, What made cosi a good fit for me? My second interview - was just me being told that i already had the job and basically what it intel in a nutshell.   1 Answer
