Cashier/Barista Interview

Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Peet's (San Francisco, CA) in March 2017.

Interview

The manager was super nice. The interview only took about 15 minutes and we talked about how much we liked tea! She asked a lot of questions about my previous experiences, what I did, how I solve problems. We even talked about San Francisco, living here as a native. It wasn't too serious. The questions were a bit hard but she was easygoing. We talked about politics in San Francisco, how we loved it here. I even met a couple of my coworkers during my interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Peet's (San Francisco, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I met with the manager in the shop as early as I could schedule the interview through email. It was very casual, but be sure to come prepared with a copy of your resume and dress up a bit. The interview itself composed of a few questions about the company and coffee, as well as to what I could expect from the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Peet's (Cotati, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Easy if the person shows enough initiative to learn Peet's way of coffee and tea. If the interviewer was applying for a position in coffee retail, they should be knowledgeable or at least a casual coffee person. Applying for either part time or full time is flexible to Peet's management.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Peet's (San Francisco, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied in-store and within a few days received a phone call asking if I wanted to interview the following day. I arrived about 15 minutes early and was offered something to drink with the managers. I had the interview one-on-one with the manager, who asked pretty basic questions (How would you handle an upset customer?/How do you manage your time?/ect.). I was offered the job on the spot.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Peet's (San Francisco, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    It was an open call with on-the-spot interviews held at an existing Peet's location. The interviewer was friendly and warm, and even though he'd clearly been doing many interviews already he was still upbeat. I didn't have enough coffee-related experience, which is why I think I didn't get a job offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Peet's (Pleasanton, CA) in April 2011.

    Interview

    I had applied to Peet's three weeks ago. Then I got a call on Thursday to come in for an interview with the Store manager. So I went in around 5pm on a Sunday. The store manager was very friendly and gave me a free cup of coffee.

    We sat down and chit chatted, she asked me very basic interview question. Figuring out whether I had availabiliy, how long I might stay and work there and whether I could communicate well. She also talked a lot about herself and her vacation plan.

     She told me she was going away for a week for vacation and won't be able to let me know until she came back next Tuesday/Wednesday. In addition, she couldn't set up another interview because the assistant manager wasn't there. So I waited. Three days past that Tuesday or Wednesday; I never got the call back.

    Perhaps, I did not make it to the final interview. Or she simply had too much fun during her vacation and forgot about her interviewees. However, I am not disappointed at all because I got a similar job somewhere else.
