    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Starbucks (Sint-Pieters-Woluwe, Brussels (Belgium)) in April-2018.

    Interview

    C'était un speed job-dating, il y avait donc pas mal de monde, on a pas du attendre longtemps car vu que les entretiens se faisaient dans le café même et il y avait plusieurs personnes à faire passer les entretiens. Les baristas présents étaient très sympas et nous faisaient passer le temps !

    Les personnes faisant passer l'entretien étaient elles aussi sympathiques ! :)

    Interview

    il existe un guide d'entrevue qu'il est possible d'obtenir si l'on possède des contacts dans l'entreprise.
    Ce sont des questions de type comportemental et situationnel.
    Ils veulent également connaitre nos réalisations et accomplissements tant professionnels que personnels.
    Le focus est évidement porté sur le service à la clientèle. Ils regardent aussi les implications sociales et les actions bénévoles que l'on peut avoir fait. il est donc important d,en faire mention dans le curriculum vitae.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Starbucks.

    Interview

    After filling out online application. They will show you a list of Starbucks that are hiring about 10. WRITE EVERY STORE NUMBER DOWN!!!!!!!!! Then, CALL EVERYONE OF THEM!
    Read this 2 minutes script.

    "Hi, My name is ________, can I speak to your hiring manager please." If the hiring manager is not there, find out what their name is and what day and time they will be available. Find out the name of the person you are talking to and write their name down as well and thank them for their time. Then, call back when the hiring manager will be available.

    If the manager is there.
    "Hi, my name is ___________, I saw online that your store was hiring and I was wondering If I could stop by for no more then two minutes, to drop off my resume and cover letter. When your free of course, this way you can get a feel for me vs just seeing my name on a piece of paper."

    Two things will happen, either they will state they are no longer hiring, in which case, you ask them if they know of any other stores that are hiring and what is that managers name. Thank them for their time then, repeat the script with that store.

    Or they will give you a time and a day. (Mines offered to meet the next hour.) Prep A resume and a cover letter, dress up as best as you can. I wore a shirt and tie. Go in. be positive, show them you want to learn, and be honest. I told them I didnt drink much coffee, but there is a lot of coffee history they' will teach you if you ask. For fun, ask them about the black apron.

    Negotiation

    No negotiations.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Starbucks.

    Interview

    No interview. I applied and was hired. But I am required by Glassdoor to write at least thirty words about it so I am just going to be typing bout nothing because there was no interview. I was probably hired without an interview because I work at a Starbucks on a college campus in the student union.
