    Current Employee - Store Manager in Minneapolis, MN
    Current Employee - Store Manager in Minneapolis, MN

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

    Pros

    Some great people as peers and employees. Fun environment. Really great product. Good practices where the product is concerned. Most peers have great passion

    Cons

    Low pay. High expectations with certain promotions - meaning can be pretty pushy. Good sales, profit and people management sometimes not enough to earn better wages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust is getting better with employees, but you're sometimes a bit too keen to "work out of the business" employees that have been around a long time

    Pros

    Great Leadership, Great Values and Quality Product. Benefits are good & there are great opportunities for advancement at the Store level! Opened many New Stores in 2012 while many other companies were downsizing. Still opening more in 2012.

    Cons

    All Retail- so expect Retail hours and hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase R&R points/value
