Shift Supervisor Interview

Anonymous Employee
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Starbucks.

Interview

When I applied it took a month for them to contact me and set up an interview (I called three times in that month to ask about openings). The interview process was more relaxed than I had expected. It didn't feel like an interrogation like some do. I was hired that day about four hours after my interview and started two days later. It was very simple. Normal paperwork and training.

    Shift Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Starbucks.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was simple and unintimidating. However, it seems more effective to walk into a Starbucks, and ask to speak with a shift supervisor or manager, and express your interest and qualifications than it does to quietly submit an application. The application review process was not a priority, especially as the location only hired one new barista every several months.

    Negotiation

    I interviewed with the company twice. When I originally took the position, and when I returned to work for the company after a 2-year hiatus for school. The first interview was great and the offer was fair. I was not satisfied that I was offered MUCH lower pay when I returned to work for the company than the pay I had reached 2 years prior.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Starbucks (Augusta, GA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Store manager calls you in after submitting an application. Usually doesn't help to call the store. My manager has told me that has no effect on if he calls anyone or not. honestly it's better to just have a friend that works there that is in management then see if they'll help you out.

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Starbucks (Eau Claire, WI).

    Interview

    My store has the current supervisor team interview all of the candidates. This gives the team more satisfaction in the decisions being made to make the management a unified force. The interview consisted of some pretty basic questions and was fairly simple. The intimidating part was having four other people interviewing.
