    I had my interview at Starbucks on Monday, and did the on job evaluation on Wednesday. They told me that they will give me a call by the end of the week, but no calls till now. I'm really expecting the job, should I pop into the store today (Sunday)? Or shall wait until Monday, at least?

    The shift supervisor seem to be interested and one of the employee told me not to worry and sure that I will get hired because they are having a vacancy. But then as they told me, there are 3 other applicants aswell.

    If I've read it right - only 3 applicants for one job? Really? I wish that was the case for every job...!

    I'd phone/go in and ask if they've had a chance to review the applicants because you were told they'd be in touch by the end of the week. Personally, I don't think it's persistent. Sometimes employers are disorganized and don't call when they say they will.

    I think its fine to ask, especially as they were meant to have got back to you by now, however i'd probably phone rather than go in - it just seems politer I know its horrible to be waiting to find out if you have a job, but don't think you haven't got it just because they havent got back to you....for my last job, they never got back to me but then when i phoned up they said id got the job and they just hadn't got round to ringing me yet Good luck

    I doubt they meant there were only 3 people + OP who applied, much more likely they were saying that there were 3 other applicants who had the evaluation or 3 others shortlisted. If there's only one vacancy then that would mean 3 of the 4 would be rejected.
