I was trained by a very experienced Barista who in 3 months got promoted to a Supervisor so I was amazed. There's computer training and pamphlets for you to study and go over that are really helpful. They train you for each position/ have you shadow trustworthy baristas. The best part is hands on training when they throw you right in, I feel like that's always the best practice!

This is a joke. My manager barely puts in 20 hours a week, schedules are never posted, never comes in to help out. It seems to me there are no real checks and balances as far as how much the store managers actually work. It seems like a lot of pay for barely any work. Very unfair system..

Yes. My interview was actually held in the public seating area of the store which could be distracting if you aren't focused because during certain times during the interview it got really packed and almost hectic. I think this was intentional: they wanted to see if I could maintain focus in the midst of craziness while staying upbeat, positive, and delivering the appropriate answer. Well played, Starbucks, well played!
