If you were a previous partner, they will call "Partner Contact Center" and pull up your file to see your past at Starbucks and see if you are eligible for rehire. Other than that, just your basic reference checks and suck.

Sometimes they'll do a reference check but that's as close as it will get. It depends on how busy the manager is.

Not that I believe.

Answered - Shift Supervisor (Former Employee) - Toronto, ON

Report answer

Not sure. 75 percent of their work force is students and young adults so this generally doesn't seem to matter.

Its optional I believe though.
