    Positive people.
    Good community.


    no sick time, paid time off, very detail oriented, but inconsistent, and no visionary leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think investing in your employees in training is good, however, there could be more positive feedback and appreciation. Benefits should be automatic and not something you pay for, especially since there is no sick leave. There should be more sales training, and less sales pushes for customers. If sales pushes continue, it should be with K. Cups rather than ground coffee.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Caribou Coffee.

    Interview Details

    You are to apply online. I suggest calling the store manager and stating you have applied and would love an interview. Once an interview is set up, it is usually a 1:1 interview with the store manager. If the manager likes you, he or she may request you interview with one of their shift leaders as well. If offered the job, you must submit to a background check that takes 1 whole week. Once that comes up clean, you are hired and begin training.
