    Work-Life balance is anathema at Caribou. Talk the Talk, sure. But Walk the Talk? Absolutely not.

    I have been working at Caribou Coffee full-time

    Pros

    There are some great, smart, hard working people to work with.

    Cons

    Low wages relative to the work load. No responsibility/authority relationship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be transparent. Don't call a labor reset a 'New Store Strategy'. Stop manufacturing reasons to 'get people you don't want, out of your store' ( yes I've heard that ). Look at your 'real' priority list. Customers are NOT first. Employees are NOT second.

    I have been working at Caribou Coffee full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lively, busy atmosphere. Free coffee.

    Cons

    Barely any pay increase opportunities given, very low pay and raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on customer service. This shift away from the cozy customer feeling is for the worst, I feel as Caribou continues to expands I feel it is loosing its vision.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
