    I worked at Community Coffee full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great pay, Good Benefits, Great working environment and fair management team.

    Cons

    Long hours 55 to 60 a week, pressured for new business daily, at times you feel like your on an Island alone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Branch Manager was great, Area Manager was very self serving and one of the two Supervisors had no clue or the experience to be doing the job he had been given.

    Lead Barista Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baton Rouge, LA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Community Coffee in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Pretty standard interview process for a part-time, minimum wage job. Application was filled out in-store, I received a call about a week later. The interview was held in-store as well and was certainly not difficult. They asked why I wanted to work there, but you could tell the only thing they really cared about was my availability. Once they heard the availability they wanted, I was hired on the spot and started work the following day. Just like that.

And there's more brewing: more than 30 CC's Community Coffee Houses have sprung up in Louisiana since the original coffee shop opened in 1995 in New Orleans. The company also offers whole coffee beans, teas, chicory, and coffee-related gifts and accessories... More
