    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Starbucks (Wilmington, DE) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Submitted online and called two weeks later only to discover no one had checked the online applications. Week later they called to schedule an interview.

    You have to go up to the drink counter and state that you're there for the interview. They always offer a free drink so be polite and take it! Sat down in cafe area and was interviewed by a single manager.
