Internships with Starbucks

Seattle, WA

Position Duties / Responsibilities

The Starbucks internship program is your chance to be highly innovative and collaborative in a supportive environment, and to demonstrate your leadership potential.

Based at our Corporate Headquarters in Seattle, Washington, the program runs for 10-12 weeks during the summer months. It is designed to provide a robust and meaningful experience that includes high impact, business-relevant projects with well-defined goals and deliverables. You’ll have access to professional development and mentorship, leadership exposure, and Starbucks and Seattle immersion activities.

Often times we offer our interns a full time opportunity. So at the end of the summer, your performance will be formally evaluated in consideration of a full-time career upon graduation.

Program Benefits

We’re proud to offer competitive pay to all interns, plus housing assistance for students based outside of the Seattle area.

Other program benefits include:

  • A free pound a week of whole bean coffee (or tea, K-Cup® Packs, etc.), plus all the handcrafted beverages you can drink.
  • Discounted food, beverages and merchandise in our company-operated retail stores.
  • The chance to spend the summer in Seattle—an amazing city.
  • The opportunity to network with a community of interns and partners at all levels across the organization.

How do I apply?

Starbucks recruits internship candidates through a variety of outreach activities during the year. Follow us on Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn for updates on our application periods.
