    Barista Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Starbucks (Tucson, AZ) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Hiring manager was very kind, and finding a way to relate to her and have a long interview and discussion about retail during the interview was easy. They're more interested in finding someone they can teach to be a barista that already knows how to be nice to people and super not awkward.

    Barista Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mesa, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Starbucks (Mesa, AZ) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring manager ordered herself and me a drink, sat down and went through a very nontraditional line of hiring questions. However the questions left an opportunity to talk about yourself as a person and what you expect from others. For example, the types of questions asked are similar to "Think of a product or service, that isn't Starbucks branded, that you enjoy or like and sell that product or service to us." Unlike the "What makes you qualified?" types of questions, they put you in a situation, and what was the outcome, how did you achieve it and why.

    Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Starbucks (Phoenix, AZ) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty relaxed and the manager put me at ease right away by asking me things like job history and why I applied for the job. After that she explained that the next series of questions were designed to be answered in story form, and to take my time. She wanted me to use real experiences from my work history. I previously worked at a Safeway Starbucks so I had some experience behind me already.
