I applied online. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Community Coffee (New Orleans, LA) in September 2012.
The interview is set in three stages. First you will be contacted for a phone interview with someone from HR. If you pass this screening level of about a thirty minute session, a week later you'll be requested to come in for an in person interview with the District Manager. If you pass this interview, a week after that you will then be requested to go in for another interview with someone from corporate offices. After this interview, you'll go to a local store and job shadow with a current General Manager. Another week later and you'll be contacted by HR once more to start the full background check portion of the process.
- All the interview questions are fairly standard across the board. The most difficult part of the interview process is that its a 4-6 week session for a very low paying position. Answer Question

The low offer would barely allow a single individual to afford to live in any metro area. Everyone associated with the company was extremely friendly and really made me wish they made an offer that wasn't laughable.

Community Coffee is a cuppa Joe with a Cajun patois, don't you know. Boasting that it makes the largest family-owned retail coffee brand (Community Coffee) in the US, the company imports, roasts, and sells its brew in grocery and convenience stores, restaurants, hotels, and offices throughout eight southeastern states. 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...
