    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Starbucks (Seattle, WA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    30 minute sessions with each members of the team, lots of great questions and fun activities during interviews. They definitely asked you questions about your background and how it can relate to Starbucks as a brand and as a company. Each members of the team had different personalities, but that's what made it more appealing. They all said they loved their job there and you can tell by just the interview.
