I've had 3 interviews with Starbucks. The first time, they called, I never showed... I got a better job offer. The second time I applied at a different type of coffee place on a campus, had an interview... the manager liked me, but decided to hire someone else. She gave my resume to the Starbucks in the campus library. Had an interview... no dice. The manager was really... weird. The third time... I was looking for a second job, and so my availability wasn't great, but I got along well with the manager... she hired me on the spot.
I've also been hired twice by former long-time Starbucks managers, who worked in different coffee stores. (They both ended up hating me and trying to fire me though.)
The thing I do is to just be whatever they're looking for. I LOVE working with people! And you know what I love best about Starbucks? As a customer, I have never had a bad experience. The employees have always been super friendly and I would love to work in an atmosphere like this! I think I would fit right in. <----all lies. I hate people.
Starbucks is all about consistency in product and customer service... and I am all about consistency in product and customer service.
Also, I love coffee, I love Starbucks. Yeah! :|
