    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Starbucks (Alpharetta, GA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very laid back not long and structured with 20+ questions like an typical interview at Walmart or target for example. I felt it to be more personal and straight to the point about why you want to work there and the type of person you are.
