    Barista Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Starbucks (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I went for a job fair for a new store they were building nearby. I approached the organizer of the event and she asked me a couple of questions about my resume, experience (especially customer service) and why Starbucks. Afterwards, they sent me over to another interviewer just to make sure I was a good fit for the company. Overall, I had a positive experience as the employees working were super accommodating even if it did get busy and the interviewers were very friendly as well. The interviewers were really easy-going so it was simple to stay calm during interviews and to be yourself.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Starbucks (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied bunch on their career site, and within a week I got an email from their recruiting team and asked me to go to their hiring event. Filled out some forms, your availability, which area you willing to work, etc. There were around 10 managers from different Starbucks location at the hiring event as your interviewer. My interviewer was very easy, some simple questions, and then they are telling you if you are hired or not right after the interview.

It was overall a great experience and i cannot wait to start my journey at Starbucks.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Starbucks (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in June 2017.

    Interview

    it was brief, I know instantly that the manager is looking for someone who's friendly and easy to smile kind of person. He stated that he's looking for someone who's available for at least 18 hours a week and after three months he can add up the hours up until 20-30. He said most of the barista is working at two stores in order to maintain their hours.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Starbucks (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    A brief phone call that asked me to arrange a date for an interview while throwing me a fast ball, why work at starbucks, why starbucks.

    The interview was very quick but unsatisfying. Given random questions about related experience but not bothering to note anything while being asked. worst was that the manager said you'll be inform next week after all those they were interviewing were done.

    took only 5 mins before i received an email saying you were rejected. I find that these store managers for the three starbucks in the area really know how to put on an act for the company. Not to mention the staff i see at this place are always the same, so it feels a bit unpleasing that starbucks even wastes peoples time and give them false hope.

    Called back and was told the manager was on the floor atm, odd seeing how she said she was interviewing for another two hours... til 6...

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Starbucks (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was really casual, more like a conversation. It was really personality-based, rather than merits, they really want to get to know the person. We only briefly looked at my previous experience or education, and I talked a little bit about my experience but that was about it. He was really interested in my thoughts on Starbucks, and encouraged me to ask as many questions as possible about it.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Starbucks (Toronto, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    The store manager asked a lot of questions, more focused on the individual instead of skills. More people focused, so you be prepared to talk about who you are, rather than the job. Also, they do double interviews - thus, be prepared to be interview twice at another store.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Starbucks (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Didn't call on the scheduled time but she called 30 min later when I was already busy. From the emphasis put on rate I gathered the pay is not competitive. Also she booked the next call during the call but then disappeared without any notice. Lied to me that they develop website and app in-house when in fact they've been developed by 3rd parties.
