    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Starbucks (Walnut Creek, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The interview took 10-15 mins. And she was super awesome. She seems interested in my life not just asking me questions about the company. She wasn't hard to talk to. She made it easy for me to answer her questions since she seems so friendly not like other interviews that looks so intimidating.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Starbucks (Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    It went very straightforward, interview with store manager and was called back within a week. It did help to call the store and ask for the manager, 'office' day typically on Mondays for Starbucks so early part of the week the Store managers are usually only focused on these duties.

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Starbucks (Portland, OR) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online through Starbucks website to a specific Starbucks location I wanted to work at. The manager of the location called me a few days later to conduct a very short phone "interview" and invited me to do an interview in person. In person interview was very fast with simple questions (ex. "Why did you choose Starbucks?"). He said he liked me and told me that we just needed to conduct a background check online. Results came back in a day and I was offered the job.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Starbucks (Richmond, VA).

    Interview

    I filled out an application online for a Starbucks that I knew was hiding nearby. Two weeks later, I receive a phone call from the Store Manager wanting to schedule an interview. I came in and sat with her for half an hour discussing my availability and the certain standpoint of the store. After the interview, she proceeded to perform a background check on me that took three days. I called her consistently to make sure my application was active & moving forward. After about a week of the interview and background check, I started training.

    Tips for "What to Wear!"
    · The store manager really wants to see you fit the role of a Barista!
    · Wear black! You don't need to dress like you are attending a funeral but the previous dress code for Baristas at SBUX was solely Black casual/semi-professional clothing.
    · Females,  Stick to something simple, a black/dark/earthy tone blouse and some black jeans for a female would work!
    · Males, Wear a black/dark/earthy tone short sleeve button up and a pair of khakis!
