    Coborn's really strives for the best with every store. They have a lot of positive aspects to each store. I have loved exploring what makes each store unique.


    The most common cons for some stores would be the restrooms. Some stores could use a serious remodel with their restrooms.

    Advice to Management

    Getting to know your employees is a great way to connect the age gaps, when present.

    I applied online – interviewed at Coborn's.


    I had applied online. About two weeks passed by the time I had gotten a call. I completed the phone interview and the manager told me that he was going to set up an in-person interview and call me back in the next few days about when would be a good time for both of us. (I am a full time high school student.) The manager and I played phone tag for a few weeks. He would always call me when I was at school. I had to go into the store and request him. When I finally got a hold of him he had told me that the position he had told me was open had been filled. He then said that he would call me sometime that week to talk about a cashier position. That was almost a year ago and I never got a call.
