    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Starbucks (Troy, MI) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I was hired offsite for a different store, so another store manager was in charge of hiring me than the store I was going to end up in. I was somewhat familiar with the store manager I interviewed with, but I also feel like I could have done better had I interviewed with my actual store manager.

    Barista Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Ann Arbor, MI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Starbucks (Ann Arbor, MI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was short. Maybe 15 to 20 minutes. General questions. I felt I did pretty well and the interviewer seemed to like me. She told me there would be a second interview and I should get a call later that day or the beginning of next week at the latest. Well,that call never came. I found this misleading and rude. I didn't even know there was a second interview process. If she didn't think I was a good fit, she shouldn't of given me hope. I sat around waiting for a call that didn't come like an idiot for a few days. It was misleading, and in my case I really needed a job asap. It took away from me applying to other jobs because I took the second interview offer as a good sign.

    Barista Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fort Gratiot, MI
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Starbucks (Fort Gratiot, MI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I submitted my application online, and 10 minutes later I got a call from the store manager. She wanted to clarify with me why I requested a part-time position when I had such open availability, and after I explained she told me she wanted to set up an interview. The interview was like most, with mostly situational/behavior-based questions. She wanted specific examples to answer the questions, not just generally what you would do in the situation given. The manager/interviewer also asked me about my past jobs and what I liked and didn't like about them. Be sure to have well-thought questions to ask at the end of the interview, beyond what the wage is or when you'll know if you got the job. It really helped me to prepare an answer for the example interview questions people have submitted on here for Starbucks. The interview went very well but unfortunately the location was not hiring, just preparing for when a couple of their partners leave for full-time jobs elsewhere. The manager told me she would call as soon as a position came available.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Starbucks (Clarkston, MI) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online, was called later in the week. Set up an interview and was called shortly after the interview was over to be offered the position. It was relatively painless, but without submitting a resume I had to fill out a lot of fields and the application was a bit lengthy.
