It could be much better

Store Manager (Current Employee) Minneapolis, MN

ProsI love my customers, my staff and the quality of the products we offer.

ConsManagement - DM's and upward who have little to no idea what it is truly like to work in a store and base their thinking/ideas for improvement/etc on theory. Also, it is hard to be motivated when most of the feedback you get is critical and the victories/wins you do make go unnoticed.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop the repeat visits to your rock star stores where you can gloat about what a great job YOUR Store Manager is doing. How about visiting the not-so-high-profile stores and giving those store manangers some encouragment? Seriously look at updating the older stores to increase efficiency and safety for you employees instead of just looking at the ROI.

    I worked at Caribou Coffee


    Pros: Great coffee with a free half pound every week. Free shift… Cons: For a manager in a remote location there is no chance of promotion, but the carrot is always being dangled in front of your face.… Advice to Senior Management: Spend some time actually reviewing the feedback you insist on your managers giving you.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
