    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Starbucks (Huntersville, NC).

    Interview

    I applied in person after befriending several of the baristas at the store. I worked at a grocery store in the same shopping center and was looking for a new job. All of the baristas knew me by name and by my drink and they encouraged me to apply. I was called for an interview about a week after I applied and the interview was pretty relaxed, it took place in the back room of the store. The manager asked me standard interview questions (tell me about a time when, how would you handle X situation, etc.) and asked if I was willing and able to work early morning hours. I did well and was offered the job on the spot, then filled out paperwork and started about two weeks later.
