Barista - Starbucks Interview

Anonymous Employee in Barrington, RI
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Starbucks (Barrington, RI) in November 2017.

Interview

Standard questions. I will note that there was a miscommunication. When interviewing I asked “is this a temporary holiday job” and they replied “yes”. After hiring I received a “we never had that conversation”. It’s an obvious miscommunication however it’s planned out to be costly for me.

Interview Questions

  • How do you make it right with the customer if they’re unhappy?   1 Answer

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Starbucks (San Francisco, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    You get a call from the manager. You call them back and they do a pre secreening. They tell you the pay rate which is shockingly low for San Francisco. it's 14.25 plus tips. You at least get health insurance, food, coffee, discounts and stock options. They rarely offer full time but I accepted a minimum of 30 hours a week.
