Anonymous asked: Do you have any advice on how improve ones chances of getting hired at Starbucks? Interviews, resumé, questions, etc.
Simply put, be yourself. A resume is most definately a good item to submit when interested in employment with the Starbucks Coffee Company. We area company that seeks individuals interested in taking their experience here head on as a career. There is a ton of opportunity here, don’t ever limit yourself.
I would absolutely call in and request to speak to the store manager. Don’t hesitate to go in and see them in person as well. By you going into the store and asking about your application, it shows that you have every intent to get a job if one is open. Ask questions. Get to know some of the baristas. It will all pay off. I wish you the best of luck! Let me know if you get the job! =)
heyitsjanesdiary asked: Hey, do you take home your mark out every week?
Hey there! I do. Sometimes I give it to my family or close friends so they can try what we have to offer at Starbucks, but for the most part, I usually take it home. I’m fairly sure I could open up a corner side kiosk location where I live. Ha!
e-moe04 asked: I just got a job as a starbucks barista. What should I know going in on my first week?
Wow! Congrats! Well first things first, don’t freak out or think things too much. There is a lot to learn and a lot to see and do. Take your time and try your best. Your first week is really going to focus on the history of the company, policies & procedures, as well as some coffee education. If you never knew much about coffee before, be ready to see a whole new world.
You will get to learn a lot about each coffee we offer at Starbucks as well as how to make the drinks behind the line. Take your time, savor it, enjoy it. Not a lot of people get the opportunity to become a part of the company. If you want to take it far, go for it. There’s a ton of opportunity in the company. Have fun and let me know how it goes and ask me any questions you have. I’m glad to help in any way that I can!
