Starbucks Store Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Warner Robins, GA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Starbucks (Warner Robins, GA) in August 2017.

Interview

I submitted my resume and a few days later, I was contacted by the recruiter. She was very upbeat, energetic and very transparent about the whole process following our interview.

I was interviewed by two district managers a week later. The two district managers I interviewed with were very passionate about the company and both had great career growth stories to share.

After that interview, I was told I would need to interview with the regional director. There was a bit of a delay with that appointment but the recruiter reached out to me and explained what was going on and why it was taking so long.

I finally did have an interview with a district manager who was filling in for the regional director while she was out on vacation. This district manager was much like the others I spoke to. Had passion for the company and was able to relate to my background.

During this whole process, I will say that everyone was very kind, passionate and transparent. Very professional and easy to talk to.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Starbucks (Fairmont, WV).

    Interview

    The interview process was enjoyable from a recruiter over the phone, then a Web 'zoom' interview. Then was followed by 3 more Web interviews by District Managers. All the interviews were challenging, yet very good experiences of getting to know me. I also felt that they described the workingredients culture very well.
