    Barista Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Starbucks (New York, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I love Starbucks. I was hoping to go back with them and grow with there company into a store manager. It was weird felt like she didn't want to hire me even though I had Starbucks experience, and Barista experience. She also was getting personal with the questions. Telling me about herself. I got the vibes that she didn't wanna hire me because I wasn't gay. Worst interview ever.

    Interview

    They asked questions about my experience in hospitality and working under pressure. I felt they were asking in regards to see how competent or knowledgeable I was. I had little experience working with that.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Starbucks (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Applied online. About two weeks later, a recruiter contacted me via email to schedule a phone interview. Right after the phone interview, I was invited to interview with two DM's in person. The next day, I was contacted by the recruiter and then scheduled a phone interview with a Regional manager. After that weekend passed, I was offered the position at $48,000. Super excited!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Starbucks (New York, NY) in May 2017.

    Interview

    It's best to visit each store you've applied to and give them your resume because applying online isn't enough. The hiring managers may take awhile to get back to you.

    With my first interview I had visited the store, got a free drink and was asked questions about myself. They want upbeat, energetic and organized people, this was my first job and it really surprised me as to how easy the process was.

    Data Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Starbucks (New York, NY).

    Interview

    There was absolutely no professionalism from the recruiter I was supposed to talk to for a phone screen. The recruiter asked me to schedule a time on their calendar for a 30-minute call and on that day I did not get a call. I tried sending two email follow ups and did not hear anything back. The day after, I tried to call their office number, but it had no voice message so the phone continued to ring. I got a call from the recruiter a couple hours later and when I tried to speak they were not able to hear me on their end...sounded like they were outside in the streets at that time. After the call got disconnected they never attempted to contact back. This was the most disappointing interview experience I've ever had because there wasn't even one to begin with. Starbucks HR needs to ensure they hire recruiters who show respect and professionalism to job candidates.
