    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Starbucks (Ontario, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Two interviews. One with store manager. One with gm who manages a few nearby stores. Interviews happened two weeks apart. The asked typical questions and wanted to determine if they thought you were a good fit with the coworkers there who were already employed. I don't know really.

    Also, one more thing, there was a long initial phone call. Our Starbucks had a drive through and they want to make sure you have a friendly voice that sounds cheerful and upbeat. Positivity!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Starbucks (Temecula, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I had a group interview. It went well. Not all interviews are the same it really depends on the hiring manager and the way that they handle their store. My hiring manager is concerned about her money, so you have to make sure that you are on time, you are not inefficent.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Starbucks (Rancho Cucamonga, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The hiring process was mellow and casual. They offered my a free drink as soon as I got there and I said no. They asked again as if it was a test of your knowledge of beverages at starbucks. My interview was fast and concise, ultimately I was not what they were looking for.
