Very Easy Interview

Store Manager In Training Interview

Store Manager In Training
Minneapolis, MN

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Caribou Coffee in February 2012.

Interview Details – Phone interview by a human resources person followed by multiple interviews with district managers. Some of the questions were serious others are typical of Caribou Coffee and are silly in nature like if you were a super hero what one would you be and why. I ended up having the majority of interviews at a jobfair which I was asked to attend after my phone interview. Each was with a different district manager. There were three interviews total.

Interview Question – I personally thought the superhero question mentioned above was difficult since I am not familiar with many superheros.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There weren't many negotiations.

Store Manager In Training Interview

Store Manager In Training
Duluth, MN

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Caribou Coffee in June 2012.

Interview Details – 2 interviews. One with the District Manager, one with the Director of Operations. The interview process was more like a conversation than an actual interview. I felt rather welcome like I belonged there, not so much like an outsider trying to get in. The conversation focused on my contributions to the company prior to the interview and how I could help the company grow in the future.

Interview Question – This company likes to ask unique questions that focus on personality. The most unexpected question was: If you were shrunk to the size of a pencil and put in a blender, how would you get out?   Answer Question
