It was so much more stressful than it had to be for a barista position. My interview lasted over an hour with the store manager. It was painful, his questions were vague, it seemed to never end. Only positive was a free drink. It turned me off to this company, they seem to be serious snobs.

I had a really good interview process. i first had a 10 minute interview on the phone, a couple days later they asked for an interview in person, then about a week after i went into my second interview and after i left they called and offered the job. they ask “have you ever been in a situation where...” “tell me about a time when...” type of questions.

The entire process took one week. I submitted my application to the store on a Monday; got a call from the SM on Wednesday and got asked a couple of questions then got asked to come in for an interview on Saturday and was offered the job on Sunday. The interview was really easy the SM seemed to be very nice and easy to talk to so I wasn't nervous. I just talked about my previous experience with customer service and why I would make a good fit.

It isn't the easiest interview I've had but not the hardest. I did a few minutes with the manager over the phone and she asked me to come in. Typical questions were asked such as asking about your previous experience and questions regarding situations you may encounter in the workplace.
