    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Starbucks (Denver, CO).

    Interview

    It took 15 minutes, they offered me a drink, and asked fairly simple questions. The hiring manager was very nice, and made me feel comfortable. I think the most important thing in the interview was to show personality and past experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Starbucks (Denver, CO) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and shortly after was invited to do the "day in a life" virtual job try out. The process is detailed and pulls from previous experience. It takes about 30 minutes. Within a few days I received an email for a phone screen. The phone screen itself was with a very friendly and professional recruiter. She mainly asked questions about my past experience and job functions. She contacted me a few days later for an interview. The interview was in a store, with 2 district managers. Both were very kind and welcoming. They asked 4 experience based questions total with a few follow-up questions. Every step of this felt casual. I felt relaxed within minutes of the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time when you had to sacrifice customer service for business needs.   Answer Question

    Barista Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Starbucks (Littleton, CO) in November 2015.

    Interview

    This is my second time being interviewed with Starbucks: 1st time, I declined the offer.

    I met with the GM, who was really pleasant. She established how she was looking to build up her crew, and I was very eager explaining my own prior experience working in coffee for over a year. After an hour passed, she informed me that a second interview was mandatory. She called me another day to schedule, which was set about an hour from her calling, and had to reschedule.

    The second interview, I did unfortunately arrive 10 minutes late. I am new to the area, so I did not have the stores number, consider there are probably 30 Starbucks locations around where I stay. She immediately asked 3 questions, asked if I had any of my own, and then I asked if there was anything about my interview I could improve. She simply stated she couldn't say anything about my interview, and mentioned how I was late; which I apologized for. I figured from that second interview, the lady did not particularly like me, even though my concerns were more with the first GM, since she was the one hiring me.

    The only thing of inconvenience was that my second interview's location was 30 minutes away from where I live. I felt like there were plenty of Starbucks closer to where I was, that it would have been easier for me.

    • How would you handle an upset customer?   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Starbucks (Highlands Ranch, CO) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I met with the "temporary" store manager and she asked basic questions about my work history. I then had to drive 20 miles to another store for a second interview with an unrelated store manager. They were both very interested in why someone with a college degree would want this position. I was offered the position the same day.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Starbucks (Boulder, CO) in October 2015.

    Interview

    There were two interview at two different locations. The second one was a lengthy interview that I wasn't quite prepared for. I ended up doing some training during the interview. They asked a lot of personality questions and I felt like I needed to answer quickly with lighthearted positive answers and to try and be flexible and open-minded.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me to sell them something on the spot - anything of my choice. I was not prepared for that since I just thought I was going to be making coffee.   1 Answer
