Starbucks is looking for thousands of good men—and women.
The world’s biggest coffee chain said on Wednesday it would commit to hiring at least 10,000 veterans and spouses of active military in five years. It also said five new and existing U.S. Starbucks cafes on or near military bases will share a portion of each sale with non-profit organizations that help veterans re-enter the workforce.
“This demographic represents one of the most underutilized talent pools in our country,” said former U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates, now a Starbucks director.
Announced ahead of the U.S. Veterans Day holiday on Nov. 11, Starbucks’ new effort aims to expand and strengthen its existing mentoring program through the Armed Forces Network.
“This is not only about hiring baristas,” Chief Executive Howard Schultz told Reuters.

Military Talent Recruiting… WE WANT YOU!
Many military veterans are excelling in a variety of careers across Amazon, as we value veterans and the unique experiences and capabilities they bring to the table.
“We actively seek leaders who can invent, think big, have a bias for action, and deliver results on behalf of our customers,” says CEO Jeff Bezos, alluding to Amazon’s leadership principles. “These principles look very familiar to men and women who have served our country in the armed forces, and we find that their experience leading people is invaluable in our fast-paced work environment.”
We want you to help share and shape our mission to be Earth’s most customer-centric company. Amazon’s evolution from website to e-commerce partner to development platform is driven by the spirit of invention that is part of Amazon’s DNA. It’s what we do, every day – and the good news is that we’ve only just begun.
So, what’s next? Join us, and you’ll not only see the future, you’ll create it.

Oddball questions may seem to have nothing to do with an open job position, but companies are increasingly asking these types of brainteaser questions to determine a candidate’s ability to think on their feet, think critically, problem solve, and effectively talk through a response. Keep in mind, there aren’t always right or wrong answers to these questions, but they can still be tricky.
If an interviewer asks you a wacky question, try not to get knocked off your feet. The point of such questions is to see if you can keep it cool under pressure, so don’t be afraid to answer in a creative way. You want to make the interviewer remember you -and these types of oddball questions offer a great opportunity to do so. Good luck!
