    Baristas and Shift Supervisors

    As a barista or shift supervisor you will enjoy a job in a fast paced environment that comes with serious benefits including a very competitive hourly rate, 25 days holiday for full time partners, training and career opportunities, flexible working hours, stock options and a free bag of coffee every week! You can apply in 2 ways, either print off the relevant application form below:

    UK Application Form or Northern Ireland Application Form

    then simply complete and post or hand it in to your local store (Store Locator) . Alternatively you can visit your local store where the store manager will be able to give you more information about vacancies at their store or the local area and give you an application form to fill out over a cup of coffee.

    I just sent a CV to my local store, who didn't have any jobs going, so they passed it onto the store at the other end of the designer outlet, who interviewed me and offered me a job! However, i rejected them bcos one of their conditions was that I had to work at least one weekday or both days at the weekend, every weekend, and I wouldn't have been able to book a day off for a month....erm, I'm in 6th form, getting into uni is more important than a job right now, so bye bye Starbucks! It was only a 3 month temp job too, plus the pay's minimum wage (or thats what I was told by my interviewer anyway) and its really high pressure, you've got to learn all these recipes for making drinks...that's right, recipes, and if you fook up, well... I'm up for that sort of thing, but that store has got to be one of the busiest I've ever been into, plus it's hard for me to get to, so it didn't really appeal to me!

    My 16 year old mate is on over £6/h! I'd like a job there but all the people who work in the one near me look really dull.

    I bet the posts have probably been filled by now! How funny would it be to get a new job... only for Sainsbury's to find out I was right there still haha!

    Colleagues of Sainsbury's (myself included!) use the Starbucks all the time, it wouldn't go unnoticed.

    actually, he'd have started on around £5.25p/h dependent on where he works. after three months, it goes up. i'm currently on £6.25p/h, having started on £5.10p/h in february 2006.

    calumcvet - of course you need to learn the drink recipes, it's not that shocking, honest. it's guaranteed you may mess up, but it's not the end of it all. you won't get the sack for it. it's all part of the learning curve. it can be high pressure, but i all depends totally on where the store is and how busy it gets. my store gets very busy at times, but there's also quiet points during the day - if you do end up getting a job there then those quiet points are the best time to ask questions to your colleagues and to get them to show you how to make something or how to mark it correctly. honestly though, once you get the hang of it, it'll be something you can do in your sleep. as for your colleagues, they may not look happy and smiley when you're in front of the counter, but get behind it and that may be very different indeed!

    see the top of my last post it'll also be different depending on what zone you work in (there's 3) and also if you're working in london then i think that's different too. it goes up after 3 months and then again every october too.

    really?! oh fook, why the hell did I not accept the job... erm... does anyone know what the smallest amount of hours you can work a week is? main reason I turned starbucks down first time was bcos they were asking me to do 16 hours a week, which I kinda can't do with college...and I do need to have a break at the weekend, agreed? money isn't everything etc etc

    8 hours per week is the least amount you can do. but, if they need someone who can work 16 hours then that's what they'll ask for. doesn't have to be only at the weekend though, you can work after college, depending on the store's opening hours. e.g, at my store we have people doing 4-9 shifts, so that they can finish college/uni, come to work and still have time off at the weekend. all depends entirely on the manager though really.

    good point, 8 hours I can do no problem...problem is, I only know for definate that I'll be able to work one evening shift a week (which the store manager at my interview said I could do, in addition to a day at the weekend) bcos I don't know my timetable yet for lessons and stuff. Oh how bad I feel now for turning them down... OK, I've not been feeling great for the past month ie may be depressed, hopefully not, but someone please give me a wake up call and call me a *******?

    Starbucks do have a knack of not getting back to you on applications. I think it should be a compulsary process to find out if you've been accepted, declined or the application is on hold etc..

    I have always liked the idea of working at a starbucks myself.
