    Pros

    Super cool people come in and regulars make some great relationships with you, free half lb of coffee each week, delicious coffee drink each shift, usually coworkers are cool.

    Cons

    really early mornings, minimum wage, tips aren't so great, sometimes people are really crazy before you give them their coffee.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have much advice for management since my managers were always terrific. Keep doing great work!

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Caribou Coffee.

    Interview

    It was very laid back, as far as interviews go, and the managers and other employees were friendly and made me feel welcome. I was introduced to everyone immediately and was treated with respect from everyone there. The questions were unique and unexpected, but effective. Be sure to know of a time when you were in a difficult situation, and how you resolved it, i.e. with a previous job or school situation! They ask quirky questions such as 'If you were a drink, what kind would you be and why?' (I said iced vanilla latte!) and 'If you were an animal, what would you be and why?'

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate a slightly higher wage based on my previous experience, the manager was willing to listen and open to negotiation.
