    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 ! :)

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Starbucks (Nashville, TN (US)) in September-2009.

    Interview

    I applied as a walk-in to a local Starbucks - submitted my application - and was called by the Store Manager for an interview the very next day. After my first one on one interview with a Store Manager, I was called back for a second one on one interview, with an additional Store Manager (of another store). Within the week - I was called back - to be informed that I was hired. I will be starting with them right away.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Starbucks (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in April-2010.

    Interview

    I went to a Starbucks and asked if they were hiring. I then filled out an application and attached my resume along with it. A few days later I received a call from the manager and set up an interview date. Following just basic questions about my experience and job related activities, the interview wasn't bad at all. However I was informed that I didn't get the job, but it's ok i'm just glad that I tried.

    Starbucks-Barista Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Bruno, CA (US)

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Starbucks (San Bruno, CA (US)) in August-2010.

    Interview

    Ever since Starbucks set up an online application system, the hiring process was a lot smoother. I applied years before when they were taking paper applications, and I'm sure it was a lot less efficient. Anyway, I received a call several days after applying online. The online system lets you select several preferred locations, so this location had openings.

    The 1:1 interview was pretty straightforward. Mostly asked questions about your customer service skills, ethics, how quickly you learn, etc. I know this location was looking for baristas that can provide excellent customer service and that was the priority. Scheduling came secondary to that. I was offered the job on the spot and asked when I could start.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you had a conflict with a customer. How did you handle it?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Everyone starts at the same base pay - $9/hour.

    Basic interview with questions concerning strengths and weaknesses and why I wanted the job. There were some situational questions that dealt with customer service.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Starbucks (Pasadena, CA (US)) in September-2011.

    Interview

    I applied online to 5 separate locations. I followed up for weeks before I finally got an interview at one of the locations. When I came in for my interview, they gave me a free drink before we got started. I just had the interview with the manager inside the store at one of the tables. The interview was about 30 minutes long. The interview consisted of situational questions. I was able to answer some of the questions very well, but unfortunately some of my other answers were mediocre. The manager told me I would hear back from them in a couple days for a decision. I didn't hear anything back from them. I followed up for 2 weeks and then they told me they filled the position already.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Starbucks (Oakland, CA (US)) in August-2011.

    Interview

    Interview went smoothly at first. However, it got more and more awkward. Was told that I was gonna get a call within the next few days to have another interview with other store managers around the area. Never got the call, never happened.
    Go prepared. Learn about their values as a company, and be bubbly and positive. Smile. Also, have a resume with you.
