I have been working at Caribou Coffee full-time (less than an year)

Pros

I feel pushed to succeed and strive for the best possible me. The people there became my good friends. Potential to move upward in the company and get raises.

Cons

It's high stress, high pace, little pay to start with and early mornings/late nights. I often find that negative feelings stew in the store and are often voiced in a way that just makes everyone feel bad and it can escalate. I wish that positive attitude's were more the norm.

    Pros

    There is always opportunity for advancement and the company prefers to promote from within where possible.
    The company actually cares about the people who work for them. They take care of their employees.

    Cons

    Sometimes plans aren't always thought through on the corporate end, so the stores end up taking the brunt of it, but that's pretty much it.
    Other cons are ones that come with every customer service job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When planning to launch something at the store level, please reach out to the stores for feedback on ideas before launching them company wide.

    Pros

    Great discounts on Coffee and Products, You meet the coolest people. Room to advance

    Cons

    Pay isn't amazing and its somewhat difficult to get a raise. Also your hourly rate may change from day to day based on whether or not you're team member for that shift or the shift leader.
