    Hi guys!
    Has any of you ever worked (or does any of you still work) at Costa or Starbucks?
    I have applied for a job at both. At the moment I am waiting to hear from them (and hopefully I will).
    When it comes to Costa, I applied online using their website. I filled in an application and submitted it on 3rd November. Do you think I still have a chance to hear from them? I would like to work 30-35 hours a week (I study full time, am 19).
    Regarding Starbucks I filled in an application form and handed it in at one of the Starbucks branches (the one near Victoria to be precise). Though I made a huge mistake I think - I completely forgot to fill in the very first field - my favourite Starbucks drink haha. Does it severely decrease my chance to be invited for an interview?
    How long did you guys wait to hear back from them?
    I would be more than grateful if anyone could share their experience (about working there as well).
    Thanks in advance

    No experience with Starbucks, I'm afraid, but I did hear back from Costa within about 10 days of submitting my application online. This was for a very small branch though, so in London it could be very different. I'd say you've definitely still got a chance

    Haha thanks for the answer
    Unfortunately I haven;t heard from them yet.
    But there are many people who apply for a job there - especially in London.
