I applied online – interviewed at Starbucks.
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.

I applied online – interviewed at Starbucks.
I applied online and received a call to set up an interview appointment. Dress your best as you should for any interview. You're offered any drink. I would accept it. Why, because you're going to be one of the biggest promoters of this company's product. If you don't drink accept a free product for the company you're applying for it shows lack of passion and excitement. If you're honest, have great work ethic, happy most the time, and like people this interview will be a breeze.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Starbucks.
They will contact you if they are interested but I will also be following up if it's been more than a week and you haven't been contacted yet. Depending on the store that you are applying, when you come in you will be greeted and offered a free drink. The interview process is no longer than 20-25min. Please be presentable, I have seen people go in looking like they really don't care whether they get the job or not, it's kind of disrespectful because you are not only looking presentable for your potentially new store manager but also your potentially new fellow baristas.

I applied online. The process took a week – interviewed at Starbucks.
It was supposed to be a group interview however, no other candidates arrived to the interview. The store manager asked a series of situational and behavioral questions that are commonly asked for these kinds of positions. Overall, it was fairly easy and pleasant.
- When were you faced with a challenge and how did you overcome it? Answer Question

I applied in-person. The process took a day – interviewed at Starbucks (Seattle, WA (US)).
Behavioral Interviews. Sat with the store manager one on one and the whole process took about 40 minutes. They offered a free drink and were very relaxed. The entire interview what based on questions that started with "Tell me a time when..." The nice thing about behavioral interviews, is that there is no right or wrong answer. They are mostly looking to see how you behaved in these scenarios.
- Tell me about a time when you had a conflict with a customer and how did you handle it? Answer Question

I applied through college or university – interviewed at Starbucks.
This was a part of on-campus recruiting at my mba program. After a cover letter and resume got me through to the interview, there were two rounds of interviewing -- one was with a recruiter and the second round was with someone in the marketing department, which took place off-campus. this was case-based.
