    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Starbucks.

    I had two interviews, one with assistant manager and general manager. That location was very busy, so the more intense locations have higher expectations on hospitality experience. They were very selective of who they chose, so do not get discouraged if you do not get the job.
