@StarbucksJobs Now on Twitter
Hi, my name is Kat and I work in Employer Branding on the Global Staffing team. I wanted to tell you about the @StarbucksJobs Twitter account. It’s a convenient way for partners and customers to find out about jobs available at Starbucks and learn more about what it’s like to be a partner. The idea behind the account is simple - we tweet about interesting positions that are open and include a link to apply. Similar to the Career Center , Twitter is another way to find out about open positions. We're also here to answer any questions you have about open positions or questions about what it's like to work at Starbucks. Of course we're biased but we love working at Starbucks … more »

New Store in Mayfair, London
This winter, the Starbucks design team unveiled a new store in the hip and fashionable district of Mayfair, the heart of London. This new design not only embeds the character of the neighborhood into the store, but also elevates the look-and-feel of the traditional coffeehouse. There are many interesting features to this new store- it showcases our heritage logo, and features a large industrial community table found at an antique store in Belgium. There is artwork made from reused tea boxes once used to store legal papers in the Northwest of England. The designers also used reclaimed Welsh rift cut wood and repurposed Italian shoe/automobile leather. The store in London is an exciting international … more »
