I have been working at Caribou Coffee

Pros

I enjoy working at my Caribou because it is in my neighborhood. People are generally friendly. The young people that I work with are fun.

Cons

I don't feel that corporate recognizes long time team members as a valuable asset to their coffee company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

they should recognize in some way their long time employees.

    Pros

    free shift drink
    not a tough business to manage

    Cons

    no 401k match
    low pay for what the store generates in profit and compared to other similar companies
    no room to move up
    store managers are moved around frequently - store manager for 4 years in 9 different stores!
    They want to overstaff the stores, now no one in my store can get more than 10-15 hours because of this,
    DMs are moved around as frequently as store managers
    Hard to believe that a company that goes through this much milk doesn't recycle! my store throws away over empty 150 milk jugs each week!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your stores be themselves- the dress code is too tight, employees cannot show off their personality
    reevaluate your pay scale stores can easily afford to pay their managers 5-7k more per year and give most of their staff a $1 raise- this would lower turnover and you could actually build a culture in your stores.
    Recycle!
    401k match- every other company does this
