    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Starbucks (Saint Petersburg, FL) in December 2016.

    I applied online, and got a call from the hiring manager the next day. He asked me some basic questions. We scheduled an interview for 1pm 2 days from then. That happened to be my birthday, but I agreed. I went in about 10 min early, told the cashier I was there for my interview, he said okay and good luck, gave me my free interview drink, and I sat down. I waited for an hour. I told the same cashier I had to leave then left. Haven't heard back since.
