    I applied online. I interviewed at Starbucks (San Jose, CA) in July 2017.

    They ask you multiple questions from a sheet of paper. They would give you scenarios and ask about you and then ask whether or not you have any questions. They would then finish the interview and shake your hand and that would be it.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Starbucks (Santa Clara, CA) in February 2017.

    A fun short interview with the Store Manager that I enjoyed. I was also one of the first interviews that I didn't have to pester the company to finally give me an interview. It gave me a real insight into what good managers use as good interview tools.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Starbucks (Santa Clara, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Apply online, get a call and most likely get hired on the spot. Starbucks is technically always hiring so 80% of the time you'll get hired. Especially the realy busy one. After you accept the offer, they run a quick background and then you'll start training.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Starbucks (San Jose, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Super chill, the guy who interviewed me was really friendly. I'm a college student, so he asked a bit about that, in terms of availability. I'd recommend looking up the mission statement and company values, and find a way to mention it during the interview
