Is it possible to get a job at Starbucks and never made a cup of coffee in your life?

  1. I really need a job.Sent from my DROID BIONIC using Grasscity Forum mobile app
  2. I used to work at Starbucks and I am pretty sure there were people that didn't like coffee or have any experience with coffee before being hired. Give coffee a try before you're hired and try to really pay attention to what you think it tastes like. They will make you sample coffee as part of training so you should jump in and see if you'll be able to tolerate it first. Not a bad job if you end up taking it.
  3. Sure, they'll train you. Plus you'll make everything but real coffee at starbucks..
  4. can't be that hard really
  5. They don't really make coffee in the same way you would at home, so I think most coffee experience would be pretty irrelevant. My friend who used to work at starfucks said they used a lot of pre-portioned stuff and artificial sweeteners and mostly would mix water with some type of powder material. It's not really the same as working at a coffeehouse.
  6. Hopefully you don't get addicted to coffee like I do. I can't even sleep at night anymore without a cup of coffee during the day.
  7. Starbucks doesn't "make coffee" in the same way that you could, unless you had the exact same and extremely expensive equipment that they have in their stores
  8. I don't know, I think the way they make coffee is pretty standard. They have coffee machines very similar to what we have at home. The coffee goes into a filter in a strainer, water gets heated and runs through the filter into a holder that sits on a burner. Sounds like home to me.
    The espresso drinks are made with freshly ground coffee beans too. The only difference is that a barista will measure and grind coffee by hand, whereas a Starbucks employee just has to make sure the machine is calibrated properly and push button. I will say they do market a lot of other gimmicky drinks that you wouldn't find in a coffeehouse. 
  9. Wtf? You can learn in like 10 minutes
  10. 10 minutes? Buddy you put water in the fucking machine and add the coffee. You could teach a baby that just came out of a vagina that.
