I worked at Caribou Coffee part-time (more than a year)

Pros

Nice place to meet people. Customers are usually regulars and are friendly. An easy job you can kind of zone out at and just grind through your shift.

Cons

Depending on your manager/shift supervisor, they can be your best friend or your worst enemy. Tensions can often get very high. Early morning shifts are usually a nightmare with long line, demanding customers, and fighting through sleep.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat your team members with some respect and dignity. They're often times the backbone of a shift and frequently doing more work than the shift supervisor.

    Pros

    Making coffee drinks is fun
    Regular customers can be super awesome!
    Tips are nice

    Cons

    Never paid overtime
    Employee kindness towards customers seems very fake; they are actually disinterested
    Force sick staff to work anyway (We had one staff member with the flu who had to work-- disgusting!)
    Mean customers (occasionally)
    LOW pay ($8 an hour, even after working there for years)
    Manager is uninvolved

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying overtime, have a better incentive system so that staff members will actually cover for each other, have more involved managers
